Paula your Tart is beautiful and fabulous! I did have any problems with the preparation.
I used:
Crust Recipe #28943 #28943 (half quantity)
Tasty apples from the garden.
Swiss chocolate toffes.

To preserve the fresh color of the apples I dip the slices in salted water (1 teasopoon in 2 liter water) and I drain them very well before use.

Use a cast iron skillet, or dutch oven if camping. Bakes perfectly well and catches the runaway juices. This works great for campfire cuisine. Pack prepped crusts, apple mixture bagged and chilled, dutch oven and whipped topping. All you need is fire.

easy to fix, but did boil out of the pastry onto the pan. Also i baked it an extra 15 min and the apples were still a little crunchy for us.
