So it’s 99 degrees in Phoenix right now, with the high expected to be an outrageous 118 today. While my oven rarely gets used in the summer, I am on a mission! A coworker gave me some beautiful freshly picked, homegrown apples and I couldn’t wait to make them into a tart, so here it is:
Yes, it is baked in a pie dish because I dropped my ceramic tart pan. Most pies have much more sugar and fillers such as tapioca or flour to thicken the filling. This is a tart as the fruit is the star of the show on its own. These apples were so sweet, I used only a spoonful of sugar mixed with cinnamon and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
Thank you to S___ and M___ for the luscious apples!
