Apple Cream Tart

Melody Mahanna


This is a really nice apple tart with a cream filling. It looks like it took hours to make, but is really very simple! Most ingredients you will always have on hand so it makes for a quick last minute dessert for those "Honey/Mom, the office/school function needs a pie" moments!
