Warm Sticky Treats...
my niece came over this afternoon to play with the boys so I made some mini apple tart tartin ...so easy!
i spotted Donna Hay's recipe in Sunday's newspaper and it looked SO good I had to try it out...
Peel and core 2 apples - slice into rings
melt 2 tablespoons butter and add 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar then add apples to saucepan and gently simmer for 5mins.
Cut out rings of ready made puff pastry - place apple on top and bake in hot oven until golden.
I also poured some caramel sauce over the puff pastry scraps and baked those too - shouldnt waste anything these days.
Look how well quiet the kids are....why are they always like that when cartoons are on?

for those interested.... I'll be seeing my mother in law this weekend so I'll ask her how she makes the candied grapefruit skins.

  4. Thanks for the lovely shout out!!!! I think your blog is wonderful too!!

  5. They look good and the kids are so cute...

  6. we made these mini tartins with pears last night!! they are good - and easy to serve in the mini version.
    This cold weather is great for baking, eating and snuggling up on the couch ;)

  7. You definitely deserve the award. The kids look so content there on the couch. I thought it must have been the baked goods before you mentioned the cartoons.

  8. Looks yummy! I saw a recipe on a blog this week about making donuts out of Grand's bisquits that sounded good too.

  9. YUM to all of it! I can't wait for the recipe and the apples look really pretty.

  10. Thanks for suggesting a couple of your fav blogs. I felt a little overwhelmed a few weeks ago. Too much to see. I started blogging for inspiration and to kick my own butt into gear, but I seem to be procrastinating more than doing ... the tarts look yum. Will try.
