I had a glut of apples that were a bit past their best recently and rather than opting for the usual apple crumble I decided to do something slightly different and make an apple tart. I love pastry so it was a no brainer to make a tart. This recipe I adapted from BBC Good Food is super quick and easy, so you can whip it up in no time if you have guests coming over and it’s delicious with a spot of afternoon tea and some cream. As autumn is nearly upon us it’ll also be perfect with apples coming into season.
This delicious pastry tart is super quick and easy to do, it's a welcome change from the bog standard apple crumble and is tasty warm from the oven with a dash of cream!
