      I absolutely LOVE this tart! I am not great at making pastry but this little gem came together in no time! Hardest part was peeling the apples. It was a definite comfort food that brought a lot of praise and I can't wait to make it again....soon as I get some more applies. I didn't have sherry so I used a red wine which worked out fine. Great Keeper Recipe...thanks so much!

      This is such an impressive dessert, that would fit any special occasion, but don't wait for one to try this....we didn't. Actually, we weren't able to wait until after supper .....enjoyed it for lunch. :) The flavour is wonderful (even without the sherry) and it was so easy to make. I only made one change: the apples I used (Cortland) are quite sweet, so I reduced the sugar in the filling to 1/2 cup. I'm quite surprised that no one has reviewed this before now. Thanks Elly for posting such a fabulousl recipe. Made for the G&BB Cook-a-thon in honour of Elly's dear husband Jim.
