an apple a day...
dappy, pies, tarts, salads, and (YUM) cut into thick wedges and dipped in caramel. Why just this afternoon while the sun sauntered around my kitchen like James Dean, I plied them with Greek yogurt dusted on some freshly ground cinnamon, drizzled on a mist of honey, viola! a healthy snack, happy for the sweet crunchiness of the apples and relieved that they would not anchor me down for the rest of the day.
Oh Yeah, the apples......what to make with them? I skipped over recipes for crisps, thinking them too elementary for my seasoned baking skills. Dumplings? Please, been there done that. Pie? I seriously contemplated it, but felt like crust was more of a commitment than I was willing to make, so I kept thumbing. I wasn't in the mood for turn overs. Tarte tatin? Nope. Cobbler? Maybe another time. Strudel? I like strudel with bites of flaky golden crust, but they are appropriately challenging, so not today. I chose apple tart cake. What is apple tart cake you may ask? Is it a cake parading as a tart or maybe it's a tart masquerading as a cake, either way, it's delicious. This was dessert, from last night, then paired with morning coffee, to make a simple, yet extravagant tasting breakfast. It was amazing.
