A Rotherham Tart

Now why doesn't that conjur up the same image as "A NormandyTart"?

Inspired by the wonderful apple tarts that we have consumed in Calvados country, and delighted to find my own apple tree bearing so much fruit, I decided to cook up a treat.

Put the oven on at 200 degrees Celcius and pop a baking sheet in.

Peel and cut into chunks around 1 kg of apples

Pop 100g of butter and 150g sugar into a frying pan and cook apples in here into they are staring to get fluffy. You can add a splash of Calvados at this stage if you like.

Pour into a flan tin, or pie plate and top with ready rolled puff pastry.

Pop in over for around 20-25mins

Voila!!! Just add ceam, creme fraiche or custard and imagine you are in France.

Bon Apetite! xxxx
