Tarte aux pommes

Last week, I had some leftover applesauce in the fridge and some leftover pie dough in the freezer, so I decided to make a tarte. When I make pie crust, I always have some left over, so I freeze it. When there's enough, I can thaw it, roll it out, and make another crust. I spread the applesauce onto the blind-baked crust then layer on some sliced fresh apples. Then it's into the oven until the apples are cooked. I glazed this one with Ken's home-made plum jelly.

The last piece of apple tart.

Now I have a few apples left, so I'm thinking of making a little compote. That's a fancy word for chunky applesauce.


  1. Ooh, does that look good! Compote = Chunky applesace; Pate = Chopped Liver (excuse me, livah). French is so elegant.

  2. If I had a few apples left I would saute slices in butter and brown sugar and put it over ice cream!

  3. oh yum! it's morning in the REAL america today; we have bubbly in the fridge for 12 noon!

    1. I was so wrapped up in the events I forgot about the Champagne in the fridge. Even Lady Gaga's singing of the unsingable national song was wonderful.

  4. That is a beautiful photo and I’m sure it was delicious!
    Today is a NEW day!

  5. Ice cream would be good on top!

  6. jean, and tasty!

    sillygirl, no ice cream in the house. :(

    emm, Gaga was terrific! So were J-lo and Garth.

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
