French Desserts Mastering the Classic Tarte Tatin

Mastering the classic Tarte Tatin requires attention to detail and skill in caramelizing apples to perfection. This iconic French dessert consists of caramelized apples baked under a layer of buttery pastry. To create the perfect Tarte Tatin, start by selecting firm, tart apples such as Granny Smith or Braeburn. Peel and core the apples, then slice them into uniform pieces. Next, melt butter and sugar in a cast iron skillet until it forms a golden caramel. Arrange the apple slices in a neat pattern over the caramel, then cover with a round of puff pastry. Bake until the pastry is golden brown and the apples are tender. Carefully invert the tart onto a serving platter to reveal the beautiful caramelized apples. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and savor the delightful combination of sweet caramel and tart apples in this classic dessert.
