Tarte aux Pommes (Apple Tart)
This French apple tart recipe is deliciously rustic yet showy, simple to make, and impressive to serve. Tarte aux Pommes are perhaps the best-loved dessert in all of France. From the moment the apples are ripe in mid-August to the end of the season in late June, apple tarts are ubiquitous in restaurants and homes throughout the country.
Vanilla sugar is typically used and adds a pleasing vanilla aroma. To make it, simply place a split vanilla bean in a canister of sugar. Keep it there indefinitely.
