Apple Dulce de Leche Tart – buttery crust filled with sweet apples and brushed with dulce de leche. A wonderful easy to make fall dessert
If you had asked me a year ago how many calendars I know of I had told you there’s just one calendar for everyone.
Turned out I was wrong. There are at least two.
The one that everybody knows of and another one with food holidays. Don’t ask me who invented this food holiday calendar but I’m pretty sure you have seen or heard “Happy National …. Day” or month or week.
I was just checking my calendar and saw every single day in October is a National Food Holiday. Really, here’s a print screen.
And to top it October is the National Month for apples, caramel, cookies, dessert and 11 more. If you have a Google+ account I’m pretty sure you can see all the holidays in the Google Calendar.
i could have bought some caramel from the store but I forgot and I had no caramel candies in the house. The closest thing I had was some leftover dulce-de-leche from the chocolate dulce de leche bread and chocolate cake with dulce de leche frosting.
Just heat some a little bit and it’s nice and runny, perfect to brush the tart with it.
Another ingredient I’m not BFF with is shortening. I can not make a pie/tart crust using shortening to save my life.
I’m all butter kinda of girl. And I think it tastes even better. Buttery and flaky! And it’s totally foolproof!
As for the apples I used some honey crisp and Fuji, but I’m pretty sure any cooking apples would work.
This tart is definitely going to be on our Thanksgiving menu.
