A few years ago I saw Sara Moulton create an amazing looking French Apple Tart and immediately tried it out at home. It was surprisingly easy and came out pretty flawless, my only problem being the crust. At the time my culinary skills were slightly above novice and things just didn't cook evenly (as my dough was probably lumpy and uneven to begin with). Now, three or four apple tarts later, I'm thrilled with my results. However, I figured there had to be an easier way for a novice to produce great results. I thought about store bought pie crusts, but then realized they would be the wrong texture and consistency. Next I thought about puff pastry, but wouldn't you know it, turns out Sara Moulton was a step ahead of me.
