I cannot give it any stars because I did not follow the recipe exactly. I love the idea of little pies though. I cheated and used frozen puff pastry sheets. I used one sheet and cut into 12 pieces, then rolled thinner to fit the muffin tin. I also made my own crumb topping with 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cup room temp butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon & nutmeg. Thank you for a great idea.
Delicious, simply delicious tarts, beautiful presentation and easy to make. They turned out perfectly. They were flavourful and tender, just wonderful. I used my own warm spice mix and golden raisins and tart apples. I will definitely make these again, next time I will double the recipe. Perfect for company, very elegant.
Superb! I love recipes like this - I often make my pommes Dauphinoise in muffin tins!! These were made for Easter Day teatime, and they went down very well with family and friends. I used my own Apple Pie sugar and spice mixture for these little pies....we ate them warm with creme fraiche. Thanks for posting this simple and delightful recipe! FT:-)
