Food-2013Mar-apple2My friend Andrea, who admittedly is a professional cook made this glorious Apple and Almond tart…and oh my goodness; it was a taste from the heavens.

It had a light pastry base which not only showed off the look of the appeals but allowed their taste to shine through.

There was much begging from me to share her recipe… and now you have it. Enjoy
