While standing undecided in the kitchen, trying to come up with a tasty but fairly easy/quick dessert, I thought of an apple tart. I usually use granny smiths. So where did I go for help and for maybe something different...? JAP, of course!!

I haven't tried this recipe yet; just found it and felt sorry for it!! I will be "editing" it soon...
