Apple season has begun and I don’t know about you, Dear Readers, but I for one am ready for fall. I am ready for thick creamy soups, hearty breads and cheesy casseroles. I am ready for molten cakes and to dapple with apples. I am also ready to experiment and play in my kitchen. For the tart here, I played a bit with creating rosette garnishes with apple skins I peeled with a peeler and rolled and twirled the thin, long strips into rosettes. I placed the rosettes into greased mini muffin pans and sprinkled them with turbinado sugar before baking them about 10-12 minutes at 350° until they became golden. They turned out a bit chewy but look pretty, especially after a little dusting of powdered sugar. The easy garnish made my Rustic Apple Tart a little more elegant and it was fun to play in my kitchen. Let me know if you try it and share your results.
