Rustic Apple Tarte

Rustic Apple Tarte

November 6th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.

We took Northern Spy Apples from the Niagara fruit-belt, and made a S-pie. Truthfully, it’s a Tarte. Pastry, open-faced, filled with sweet and tart apples, masterfully blended with cream cheese, cinnamon, and sugar, topped with slivered almonds. Visually, you could say it lacks sophistication – but in the best possible way. It’s a truly rustic dessert that feels homey, simple, unrefined… and a bit rough around the edges. These are attributes handed down by hand, literally, as people (not machines) fold in the pastry edges, leaving an imprint of palpable charm.

It’s baked to a caramel-brown hue prior to freezing, but you get to put the finishing touches on this dessert when you slide it onto a baking sheet and into your warmed oven. The aromas of the freshly baked Tarte will impress your guests. When they finally get to take a bite, they’ll go from “impressed” to “in love” – you’ll know from the satisfied grins and quickly empty plates that the love affair is in full bloom.

Trader Joe’s Rustic Apple Tarte is an autumn-only offering, so if it sounds like your kind of dessert treat, grab one from our freezers while it lasts. Our price of $4.99 for each 17.6 ounce package makes it as value-centric as it is delicious.
