Work It Wednesday – Apple Tart

22 Sep

I haven’t forgotten about Work It Wednesday, my waste line just can’t afford it.  So when I get the urge to bake, I’ll be sure to bake from the FCI book and post it.  If you aren’t familiar with the FCI book, check it out.  It is a great resource for any kitchen.

This week I made an Apple Tart.  If you actually attend the FCI pastry arts program this is what you make on the first day.  I followed the instructions as best I could.  The end result tasted great!  I found myself having to bake it a little longer than the recipe called for.  Also my cutting skills are improving (no injuries this time), but they aren’t perfect…

Once again this dessert didn’t last very long!
