It’s gotten considerably colder this last week. The air is very crisp with a different chill. I have no choice but to just start embracing it. The only way I know how is through food…thank god for that! Colder weather makes be crave food like chili, butternut squash, pumpkin, braised meats, casseroles, hearty stews, and of course apple pies! The traditional apple pie can be a little time consuming, so I prefer to make the much easier apple tart. The ingredients are incredibly simple. All you really need are apples, cinnamon, sugar, and a crust. I make my own crust, but store bought dough will work just fine if you don’t have the time. Serve it warm with ice cream…although it’s also great on its own.
