Invented in the Loire Valley, Apple Tarte Tatin is one of the classics of French pastry. But what is Apple Tarte Tatin? In short, it’s an upside down tart or pie which is traditionally made with apples. This is then served with either crème fraîche or vanilla ice cream. The apples are pre-cooked in caramel, then covered with pâte feuilletée (puff pastry). The whole thing is then transferred to the oven and cooked for about an hour. The tarte tatin is then flipped out onto a serving dish, with the caramel apples being the star of the dish.
In the more recent years, the tarte tatin has evolved and taken many different shapes, but hey, I’m a traditionalist…for the most part. I love the rustic, homey version of an apple tarte tatin.
