I just noticed your reply. Sorry for the tardiness in getting back to you.

I have just posted the recipe, with pic, for the pear tart: Pear Tarte

When I made it with apples, 4 medium sized apples weighed ~600 grams. I cut them in wedges. I will try with halves next time. I substituted 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon for the ginger/cloves. I will use 1 tsp of cinnamon next time. It turned out very nicely. My DH was very happy with it and he loves apple pie and is very picky about it.

It had a nice hint of tartness that contrasted well with the sweet dough.

I just baked that apple tarte again. Yum. Four apples, this time I cut them in half.

Looks great, TL. What kind of tart pan is that? Is there a raised circle in the center?

Beautiful TL. I think it is crying for some french vanilla ice cream and/or warm caramel sauce. LOL

Thanks, it's just the bottom of a spring form pan.

I think creme fraiche would be just the ticket, not too sweet.

Stop--you're making me want to bake tonight! I just finished cleaning up the kitchen following the sourdough bread and cabbage roll soup! I had to wait for TOU rates to change to run the DW.

i found a recipe for a lower calorie muffin. notice i did not say low calorie, but by itself low enough for breakfast. even with a fried egg (spray butter flavored)and it couldn't be more simple. a pkg. of cake mix, and a 15 oz can of pumpkin. i used yellow with added vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. makes 12, 180 calories. very, very, good. had one with coffee for lunch. you could use spice cake mix. recipe called for chocolate, i didn't have one in the pantry. you will be tempted to add moisture as the batter is very thick, resist and just follow recipe.

I'm making these for the upteenth time (I use 1/2 tsp salt instead of 1 tsp)
