a visit from family & a recipe {apple tart tatin}

sunday night we made homemade pizzas & i attempted a new recipe for an apple tart tatin, which is like an upside down apple tart of some sorts. the recipe is below!

what you'll need >>
6 granny smith apples
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 lemon, juice
6 tablespoons of salted butter
puff pastry
9" deep dish, oven proof pan

directions >>

1. peel & cut the apples into quarters. add lemon juice & 1/3 of the sugar. mix & allow to sit for 15 minutes. 

2. cut a 9" circle out of the puff pastry & set aside.

 3. melt butter over medium heat in pan & add 1 cup of sugar. whisk until the carmel is light brown in color.

4. remove pan from heat & arrange apples rounded side down. place pan back onto medium-high heat & keep pressing the apples down with a spoon.

5. allow apples to cook for about 15 minutes. keep basting the apples with the carmel & you can move the apples around if some are getting more cooked than others.

6. preheat oven to 400. place the uncooked puff pastry on top of the apples. cut 2-4 slits in the pastry. bake for 15-20 minutes until puffy & golden brown.

7. place a plate that is larger than your pan on top of the pan & carefully flip the tatin onto the plate. serve while hot/warm & with some homemade whipped cream! i also like this dish cold the next day.

this weekend mark's dad came down from washington to spend the weekend with us. i wish i had taken more pictures, but sometimes it is just more fun to be in the moment & not trying to capture everything on film!
