There really is no “right” season for an apple tart. It’s appropriate any time of the year. This apple tart complies with grain free, Paleo eating!
Doesn’t it look professional? There is one special pan you need – a tart pan which will allow you to mold the crust. The apples simply need to be sliced carefully and lightly cooked before arranging in the crust.
Just because you are on a special diet, that doesn’t mean you can’t have engaging food. It does mean that the food you are eating will be completely nutritious as well as look appealing. The ingredients for the crust and the fillings are pure, whole foods and good fats.
