TWD: Parisian Apple Tartlet



For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie, the group is baking the Parisian Apple Tartlet, selected by Jessica of My Baking Heart.

When I heard we were making a Parisian Apple Tartlet, I thought about skipping this week. I kind of assumed the tartlet would involve making some sort of tart dough and an apple-pie type filling and I just didn't feel like exerting a whole lot of effort. Then I opened the cookbook and saw the picture and thought, this looks cool. Then my eyes landed on the recipe. Am I reading this right? FOUR ingredients and very few steps? Huh? You better believe I wasn't going to sit this one out!

So in a matter of fifteen minutes, I had my two little tartlets assembled. Many of the group were trying out pears and peaches and other fruits, but I decided to stick with the apple. And here's what it looked like before I popped it in the oven.


They smelled so great and I was still in shock over how little I had just done for these cute little tartlets. They lost some of their color and weren't all that impressive fresh out of the oven, but a drizzle of caramel syrup and some ice cream on top did the trick! They were delicious and I'll definitely make these again.

I just love that perfect scoop of ice cream sitting on top with the sauce drizzling down it. The whole thing looks divine. I haven't made mine yet but I'm planning on having one for dessert this evening.

Your tart is GORGEOUS! So funny - I had the same thought about this being too much trouble when I first saw a tart was picked. But after I read the recipe I had the same reaction - no way I'm skipping this one! Maybe the dacquiose :-) This tart is definitely a keeper!
