I made a tiny tart for myself and my mother today. I used margarine to try to make it a bit more healthy and used splenda also. To make the dough easier to roll out I put it in the fridge for about and hour or so. I really dont know how I feel about the additon of rosemary. My mother really did not like it, but she a pureist when it comes to her desserts, or any food for that matter. But this is def. a nice recipe if you are up for a change from you usual apple pie!
This was a great pie - the rosemary was very subtle, and just in the background of taste, as herbs should be!! (I did use only 2 teaspoons of rosemary instead of 1 tablespoon - my hubby is not too keen when it is too strong!) Don't be scared to try it - we served it with the cheese course, well why not......"Apple pie without some Cheese is like a Kiss without a Squeeze" is an old Yokshire saying we have!! I will make it again, but I will try adding the rosemary to the pastry; I make herb pastry all the time & it's nice when the herbs just crisp up a it & brown a tinge on the pastry edges. Lovely recipe, thanks Chef Kate! Gone into my cookbook.
