I think the Tarte Tatin is my favorite dessert recipe. It is so delicious and rather light if you consider that this dessert is mainly made with apples.
The apple tarte tatin is the classic dessert that you will find is every bistrot in France. But before ordering it, make sure it is home made!
And also, think of asking a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a small cup of crème fraîche.
For the Apple Tarte Tatin, the special touch is the caramel. it is not complicated at all, you just need to make sure you keep an eye on it all the time. Once the sugar has turned into caramel, it can burn very quickly! Also, when you remove the caramel from the fire, it hardens right away, so make sure you pour it in your dish instantaneously.
Pour the caramel at the bottom of your pie dish below the apples so that during the cooking, the apples become soaked with caramel.
They get the caramel taste, but also this nice brown color.
