    ElleFirebrand's Note:

    This is a true "Dutch Apple Pie." This recipe comes from a cookbook I picked up in the heavily-Dutch populated city of Pella, Iowa. This recipe, however, which features a very crumbly butter crust, is very similar to the apple pie recipes I ate often in the Netherlands. I think the lemon rind in the crust is what sends this one over the top.

      Now this is an apple tart ElieFirebrand. The crust was crisp, crunchy and tender with an incredible flavor. The apples were perfectly cooked and spiced. I added golden raisins and a strawberry, raspberry plum jam, they were excellent in the dish. Thank you for sharing your special treat. Into my keeper box this goes.

      My DW decided to make this one and it was delicious! She left out the raisins and it didn't affect the recipe at all. Next time she may add some craisins.

      Good, easy recipe for a tasty tart! I used some strawberry jam from a local farm. Nice buttery crust with a rustic look. I added some dried cranerries instead of raisins, and any dried fruit would work well with this recipe. I made this for Spring PAC 2010, thanks!
