Andy does all our cooking. He enjoys it and is good at it. (Yeah, I have it good. I know.) I do like to make the type of thing that's in one dish and requires lots of chopping and slow cooking (I make a mean bolognese), and I do like to bake. Which is a bit weird because I'm more of a savory person than a sweets person. Anyway. I've been avoiding recipes that require making pastry from scratch, ever since a disastrous experience with making gnocchi a few years back. (Yeah, I know, gnocchi isn't really pastry, but dough, pastry--anything involving flour being worked into another delicious substance makes me nervous.)
We came into possession of a huge surplus of apples from the farmer down the road, and so I decided to try something a bit more challenging than the usual apple crisp. Enter the simplest apple tart recipe from smitten kitchen. (That recipe name inspires confidence.) Though I had one moment of panic as I was peeling the rolled-out dough up from the table, it really was fairly easy and turned out tasty. (And looks very cute with all the sliced up apples crowded together, too!)
Yum. Next maybe I'll try a savory tart.
