Apple Tart Recipe

Publisher Photo
For 15 years my husband, daughter and I owned and operated an apple orchard, where we raised 27 variations of apples on 2,200 trees. This recipe is my personal favorite. My family even prefers this wonderful tart over traditional apple pie. I hope you enjoy it, too. -Marilyn Begres, Dexter, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 25, 2012

"I would LOVE to say that I made this it was simple and delicious but after two failed attempts, I quit. It is not easy to melt sugar. The first time the sugar dissolved but then hardened in the pie crust. The second attempt led to the sugar not dissolving and hardening in the pie crust. My fault maybe but still not at all an easy recipe."

"Quick and much easier than apple pie. I used greased parchment paper on bottom of pan for nonstick removal, and sprinkled 1/2 cup coconut on top of apple slices. The whole family loved it!"
