Celebrate the start of fall with our favorite apple recipes. This month, we’re partnering with Ashley Rodriguez of Not Without Salt to share tips, insights and recipes featuring fall’s favorite fruit.
A classic French Tarte Tatin can seem a bit intimidating with its exotic name, the cooked sugar factor and the daunting task of inverting a large skillet. But it’s really quite simple, and while the final flick of the wrist at the end to reveal a stunning dessert may seem scary, its results are incredibly rewarding.
Typically, a Tarte Tatin is made with granulated sugar, but here we swap the white stuff for dark brown sugar, giving a rich butterscotch flavor that ends up creating a lovely sauce to coat the apples and the pastry.
Live.Love.Lux Tip: For a perfect Tartin, you can count on the Perfect Taste™Convection technology in your Electrolux Gas Range to circulate consistent heat for even results.
Of course you could make your own puff pastry, but store-bought works well and will likely save you a good amount of time and stress. Note, the best store-bought varieties are the ones that use real butter. If the amount of butter in puff pastry concerns you, a classic pie dough or pate brisee works well here.
To serve the tart, a cinnamon and nutmeg-spiked whipped cream or whipped creme fraiche is lovely, as is a simple scoop of your favorite vanilla bean ice cream.
