I made a tart; but the "facts is"
I can't write long, because I have to do my taxes.
Time to "true up" with the government.
While everyone wonders where the money went...
I feel like I am finally winning battles in my long-standing war with pie crust. The dough came together like a dream.
One quick rant...if a book is going to tell you to 1/4 a recipe and the ingredients are listed by volume, not weight, the recipe writer should really break down the ingredients for the 1/2 or 1/4 version. Breaking down 5 1/4 cups into 1/4's taxes my brain some days... Is there an app for that?
Cutting up a million slices of apples took some time, but wasn't difficult. The bottoms of some of my tart pans have gone MIA (keeping my fingers crossed that someone didn't put them in the recycle bin), so I used a 10" pan instead of a 9" pan, but there was still enough dough to fill out the pan.
This was an enjoyable baking project and worth playing around with in the future...
This post will end here. Play time is over, I have to go back to being a grown up and finish my accounting.
