Hi everyone! It has been a while since I've done a food related post, and let's be real- food posts are the best types of posts. Considering I'm in the country of baguettes, macaroons, croissants, and most importantly, apple tarts, I thought I'd get some pie making advice from my host mom. (She calls herself the tart queen, so obviously this means business) I'm translating this from French so I'm not sure how accurate it'll be/if the exact ingredients exist elsewhere, but nonetheless, I hope you guys enjoy it! It's fairly simple and definitely delicious! If any of you try it, be sure to send me a picture on any of my social media and maybe add the hashtag #lostbutnotfound. I'm off to do some homework and watch the new PLL Christmas special in prep for this last week of school before break- we can do it!! Talk to you guys soon! xoxo
-6 somewhat large apples
-Pâte feuilletée or "puff pastry" (basically the dough which serves as your crust) *You can buy it pre-made in France*
-Butter and sugar (apply as much as you want)
1. Spread out the dough
2. Cut the apples into thin strips after removing the skin
3. Place the apple strips along the dough in a circular fashion, keeping them tight together. You shouldn't have any left over.
4. Throw on some hunks of butter like the French do best
5. Place it in the oven at 180 degrees C (356 degrees F) for 30 minutes
6. After 30 minutes have passed, add a ton of sugar, and wait around 15 minutes for it to melt. Check periodically and wait until the sugar has melted while not burning in order to take it out.
7. Let it cool a bit and enjoy with some vanilla ice cream!
