Apple Tart

 Apple Tart
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
