Last Friday, I had an itch.
With the weather dark, gloomy and wet outside, I had an itch to do some baking.
Something warm, something rustic. And something to generate the warm sweet aromas that only home cooked treats can make.
The result was this rather ‘rustic’ apple tart, that also represented my first batch of homemade ‘regular’ shortcrust pastry since reintroducing wheat into my diet.
It wasn’t perfect, and was a little crumbly in parts…
But it satisfied my baking itch, and also my sweet tooth!
The apples were sweet, and tender, although the frangipane in which they were encased needs a little refining.
So for now, I’ll share with you these photos only, and save a more fine tuned recipe for another day.
What about you? How are you at making your own pastry?
