Sweet Tart of Mine

Believe it not, I have frozen apple slices from last fall's harvest to use up before the next harvest.
This is my favorite way to use them:

Apple Tart
One sheet of puff pastry rolled thin
1/4 C of melted butter
Apple slices to cover
2 T marmalade thinned with 2 T of melted butter

Lay the puff pastry on a cookie sheet and brush some melted butter over it. Fold the edges in.
Lay out the apple slices so they overlap each other a bit. Spread the thinned marmalade over it and finish off with the rest of the butter.

Bake in a hot oven for 15 minutes or until golden. Slice and enjoy.

Simple is better

I have inherited simplicity from my peasant upbringing.
We ate what we grew.
We could taste every ingredient.
Fruit was dessert.
And bread was our sustenance.

So, when I crave the taste of home, I make this pizza.
Bread dough, sliced mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese baked for fifteen minutes in the hottest oven you can procure.

Come summer, heat up the BBQ and make pizza.
