Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe. Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe. Would a pie by any other name taste as sweet? Yes. Apple Slab. Fairly rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? I doubt anything I’ve ever baked has a less compelling name. But truth be told, it wasn’t the name that attracted me. It was an email from a reader wanting to re-create something his grandmother had made decades ago. And since I’m a complete sucker for old-time recipes, I took the bait.

This reader – I remember his name was Frank, though unfortunately I’ve long since lost his email – recalled “an apple pie baked in a rectangular pan, with a thinner than normal layer of apples and a white glaze on top.” Hmmm, shouldn’t be hard to figure out. Which I did fairly easily, simply by Googling “apple pie rectangular glazed.” Kind of. So many recipes, so little time… Apple Slab had to wait its turn. Hmmm, speaking of Bienenstich – there’s another one waiting in the wings. Even when you work in the King Arthur test kitchen, there’s STILL not time to bake everything on your “sounds good” list.

This story should tell you how good this is: I tried to freeze half of this tart to prevent myself from eating it too quickly.

Two voices could be heard in my head, one going, “You doofus, it is COMPLETELY frozen to the bowl” as I tried to pry it out of the Pyrex with a fork. And another, saying, “BAHHHHHH GIVE ME CHOCOLATE CARAMEL TART!!!” … (that’s the voice that always won). …my goodness. Bake it briefly in the oven, then let it cool down. In the meantime, make the caramel. Pour the caramel into the cooled crust, and refrigerate for about 3 hours, until set. Top with the chocolate ganache, then sprinkle with sea salt.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart » Annie's Eats. Blackberry Goat Cheese Tart. I was on a flight from Minneapolis back to my hometown after a week long escape to the ocean. I've flown dozens of times over the last few years, heading from here to there over land and sea for various reasons. I love the ease of freedom of flight—the rush of the take-off and the release of landing. This particular flight, however, was different. It started off conventionally; I boarded the small plane and, after we took flight, ordered an orange juice and settled into a good book. The sun had already set and the interior of the plane glowed softly from the irregular pattern of lights blushing overhead. The seatbelt sign lit up above me. The plane shook softly. Staring out the small window, I noticed the lights on the plane's wings were being echoed sharply by the sky. The plane jarred sharply to the left and to the right.

Am I going to die? The plane grew quiet, as if we had all held in our breaths and had nothing left to spare. Was I ready to die? We were safe. French Chocolate Tart with and ‘Argie’ Twist. I have been making this recipe for years now, it has minimal ingredients and is fairly easy to make, yet it seems so sophisticated when you serve it for dessert, maybe its the name? Anyway, being in Argentina at the moment, I have started adding a little extra twist to it by placing a layer of ‘Dulce de Leche’ at the bottom of the chocolate mixture before cooking.

This tart can afford the extra sweetness as it uses dark chocolate and there is no added sugar to the chocolate mixture. If you can not get a hold of Dulce de leche, nestle’s caramel or any other fairly thick caramel can be used in its place.
