    Annacia's Note:

    This is not really much of a make ahead. The crust can be made up to a max of 1 day ahead and it must then be kept at room temp. If it goes in the fridge it will be ruined. This tart is unusual and very appealing. It will make 8 generous servings and you can get 10 out if it easily.

      The apple filling was outstanding. However, there wasn't very much crust. I think it might be better made with 16 sheets, using two at a time instead of one. Something to experiment with. Since I'd already cooked the crust to golden, I was afraid it might burn on returning it to the oven with the apples, so I covered the edges with foil. It came out fine. The edges were wonderful! It took me about 50 minutes in prep time, broken up into three segments; it's a little shorter than the stated time. Thank you for a wonderful breakfast!
