Apple Tarte Tatin (Watch out, Julia Child!)

Bonjour, everyone! I’m home from France with a souvenir for all of you to enjoy: a magnificent Apple Tarte Tatin! Ironically enough, I watched the movie “Julie and Julia” on my plane ride back home, and as Julia Child’s most famous French dessert, it is only fitting that I bake a tarte tatin in honor of one of France’s best known pastries. An Apple Tarte Tatin, my dad’s all-time favorite dessert, makes a fantastic home-baked delicacy that fills the house with the sweet smell of baking apples and caramel!  When the apples caramelize in the pan, they form a sweet syrup that creates a delicious coat around the tart. The tarte tatin is so surprisingly simple to make; you’ll only need a skillet and four ingredients! Paired with a flaky crust and vanilla ice cream (a la mode is a must!), this dessert is totally irresistible! Bon appetit!!

**NOTE: Watching your diet? A trick I like to indulge in is freezing Cool Whip to scoop like ice cream; serve  it with a slice of Tarte Tatin and you’ll never miss the “a la mode” appeal!
