Fold-over Apple Torte
This will be a brief post but I wanted to tell you about this lovely torte, which we enjoyed this morning for breakfast. Since time is at a premium this week, I used 1 2/3 sheets of puff pastry instead of making pie crust, and it worked very well. Our apple tree is in high gear so I used apples instead of pears. When I make it again, I'll use less of the custard so it doesn't ooze over the folded down edges of puff pastry. I omitted the dried apricots and added more walnuts. It smells incredible while baking and is best still warm from the oven.
This week's wonderful Tuesdays with Dorie pick is from Gaye at the wonderful blog Laws of the Kitchen. Every time I see those strawberry macarons in her header, my mouth waters. She has the recipe for you here. And if you'd like to see how the other TWD bakers fared, you can find their tortes here.
