ccording to Wikipedia, there are more than 7.500 cultivars of apples known! When making an apple pie or a tart, it is recommended to use tart apples such as Granny Smith or Bramley, but you can use any sort you like, and adjust sweetness to your taste buds.
Every family has its own apple pie recipe, and it is usually Grandma’s, and in almost all the cases, it is the best apple pie ever! I would never question your Grandma’s recipe; however, in case you wish to try out something new, I am offering you my version of apple tart with hazelnut crumble on top.
For this tart, first you have to make shortcrust pastry, and blind bake the tart shell. While the shell is baking you need to cook the apples, make and bake the crumble. Sounds serious and time consuming, but don’t give up just yet! A small tip; prepare the pastry and apples a day earlier – when you split the work in two days; it will be a piece of cake (or piece of tart) to make it!
Well, what do you think about this post?
I read and really appreciate all the comments, even though I do not always have the time to respond to each one. So – keep me in the loop and try to create some sweetness every day because – Sweetness is happiness!!
