A Sweet Ending

Apple Tart 3
The highlight of this year's Christmas dinner was unquestionably the dessert. This French Apple Tart was not only credibly delicious but also very easy to prepare.

I love many of Ina Garten's recipes, and in my opinion, this is truly one of her best. You can find out how to make her version of this classic French dessert here. In place of the apricot jam, I glazed the tart with some of my homemade Meyer lemon marmalade.

The only comment I would add to this recipe is the following tip- to get the top extra caramelized, place the tart under a broiler for a minute or two. It's true what they say- the simplest recipes are often the best.

  1. Gorgeous! I much prefer fruit desserts over cakes and such. I'll save this for next time I need something fancy.

  14. This looks delicious! And it is very simple to make. I’ve never made any kind of tart; it’s just not common here... I don’t think that we even have a word for it... we would just call it a pie.
