"Paula your Tart is beautiful and fabulous! I did have any problems with the preparation.
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.
Prepared for Healthy Choices ABC."
"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."
"I recently ordered an apple peeler from a web site, having no hope Iâ€™d made a smart purchase. El Wrongo. It works like a charm, and I had 8 cups of peeled, sliced Granny Smith apples in no time flat. I think I read this tip on Zaar, and I'd give the chef credit if I knew who penned it: If you slice the apples into a bowl of lemon-lime soda, they won't turn brown. Itâ€™s more efficient than using the lemon juice routine for a large quantity. I actually made two pies and had 4 cups of prepared apples drained & held in the refrig for two days prior to making the second pie. One bag of toffee bits holds 1-1/2 cups, and there are 2 crusts per pack, so as Emeril says, "Why not make some friends". I had reservations on using 4 cups of apples, as it results in an enormous pile on top the crust. But, I plunged ahead and lined the baking sheet with Release foil just in case. Not to worry, the apples bake down just fine with no major mess. I used raw turbino sugar with the apples and for the final sprinkling on the crust, but Iâ€™m sure it takes more than a teaspoon to go around the edges. (Picky point.) I also added a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg. You canâ€™t miss with this for a quick & easy, delicious dessert, especially if youâ€™ve been clever enough to buy a auto-apple peeler! Thanks, Paula!"
"this recipe is too easy and too good. the second time i made this, i snipped 1/2 c. kraft caramels instead of using the toffee bits. this too, was very good. an easy recipe for kids to make also !!"
