This didn't work for me at all. I tried it twice and it was just a huge waste of good ingredients. 1 1/2 hours at such a high heat was way too much. On the first attempt I followed the directions exactly, covering when the apples started to burn. The end result was a pan of charcoal. The second time, I baked the apples a much shorter time just until the colour started to turn caramel then added the crust until it was golden. Again, the apples were charred black. There are other recipes on this site that cook the apples on top of the stove. I will try one of those instead.

This was excellent. It would have been helpful to know how long to let it set before inverting it, though, because I think I turned mine a bit too quickly.

Daughter had to make an apple tarte for a french assignment to bring into her class. Many recipes seemed too complicated, but this one was by far one of the easiest. Our only struggle was at end when half of the tarte stuck to pan and half didn't. So her presentation was not that great, BUT her french teacher (who is a native of France) and her class loved it!

Done for our family (4 people). In 15 minutes everything was gone!
What should we want more?

I love to bake and was so upset when this didn't come out of the pan, it totally got stuck. I finally got the apples out but it was a mess. Funny though my hubby still thought it was a success

I made this for a dinner party last night and it was incredible. It looked stunning and tasted even better. There wasn't a single crumb leftover. The best apple dessert I've ever made! Thank you.

Hello from Portugal. What a great receipe you have here, yes it is very easy to make, but very very impressive, and tastes absolutely delicious. Came out of the pan without any problems of sticking at all. This is a definite in my receipe box, will be making this again thats a promise. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely receipe with all of us.

Thanks for such delicious and easy recipe. I did not think at first that it will come this good. I loved it and so did my family. I used the refrrigerated pie crust from Walmart. Thanks again. I'm making it again tomorrow for a friend :) I

We have never heard of Tarte Tatin before, but this looked like similar ingredients for apple pie and that's one of Buddha's favorites so we gave it a try. This is really easy to make and comes right out of the cake pan with ease. We also had to cover the GS apples after about an hour. The caramelization on the apples makes this different from apple pie, and just as delicious! Thanks for posting this keeper. :)
