I was looking forward to making this week's TWD selection, A Tourtely Apple Tart. I love apple pies, so anytime I can find a new, delicious recipe is a good thing.
On Sunday, I prepared both the crust and the filling for Monday's baking.
While I was making the filling, I knew, just Knew!, that I should have added some lemon zest for brightness and a touch of acidity. But, I didn't. I followed the recipe.
Truly, the filling needs that kick of lemon, so I will mark the book accordingly, and next time, add the zest.
Instead of raisins, I added the remainder of my supply of currants, which was just the correct amount. (See, they didn't go to waste!)
The pie/tart assembled beautifully, and baked up nicely as well.
The tough part was getting through dinner so I could try a piece. My dear daughter, bless her heart, even tried some, although I know she does not care for cooked apples. She agreed as well that a touch of lemon would have improved the flavor.
Overall, this pie/tart is a winner, and I will add it to my repertoire.
This week's hostess was Jeanette of The Whimsical Cupcake. Jeanette will have the recipe posted as well.
