So, our move is done, and we are now residents of Fort Greene, Brooklyn!  Thanks for all the good wishes in your comments last time.  Apart from a couple chunks taken out of a hall wall by a dresser, all went surprisingly well.  We have moved five times in four years, so I’m pretty good at packing up by now, but I’m looking forward to not doing it again for at least another ten years!  Now to finish tackling the home improvements…

These Tartes Fines were the last TWD project to come out of my old apartment oven.  I had some puff pastry in the freezer already, so they were fast and so simple to crank out, which I really appreciated last week. (Thanks, Leslie!)  If you have made other puff and apple desserts, then you will know what a great combo these two things are.  Really browned and crisped puff is the way to go.  If you have either a little apple butter or almond frangipane hiding in the fridge, then a schmear underneath the apples is a nice extra touch.

For the recipe for this super easy, yet totally elegant dessert, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Lethally Delicious.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!
