What To Serve With This Apple Tart Recipe

Chris loves anything covered in powdered sugar. You see how much our girls adore him. I decided to give him a little extra sugar with a dusting of powdered sugar.

What Are The Best Apples To Use?

The best apples for this tart, and baking in general, are ones that will hold the shape and structure and have a balance of sweet and tart. The best choices are Granny Smith, Jonagold, Honey Crisp, Braeburn or Pink Lady. all of these varieties will hold up well and make your tart stand out from the crowd!

Can You Freeze Apple Tart?

If you are organized and planning ahead, you can freeze this tart either before or after baking. It is often better to freeze the unbaked tart and then cook it from frozen, it’s texture and structure will be more like a freshly baked pie this way. To freeze the pie before baking wrap it in a double layer of foil. You can also keep an unbaked pie in the fridge for up to 2 days.
