Ideas, tips & tricks

Make sure to use a very good butter as it greatly influences the taste of caramel apples develope.
Although purists feel that the Tarte Tatin is sufficient in itself, We like to accompany a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to create a hot-cold .Finally, We must also confess that We find it hard not to buckle in the Calvados .
Lovers of biscuits can also use this delicious Belgian biscuit reduced to powder you add sugar. A bit of cinnamon also marries well with apples.
A bowl of cider is the perfect little refreshment to accompany this wonderfully tart.
You can also make this recipe with the pastry .
Personally, I prefer the pastry but I am unable to say what is the real Tatin: that the puff pastry dough or the broken one? — Also Read: Quiche Leek and Bacon recipe
