a bunch of dessert apples and some boozy pastry made this tart a hit. To get the striped effect I lazily peeled one strip off the midriff of each apple, and then cut them into quarters, took out the core and cut each quarter into slices. The wandering look of the stripes came about because I mixed up the apples, so the peeled part aligned in a wobbly way with its neighbouring slice. I think I will try it again using a bit of cinnamon. I used my easy pastry, but it would work well with a packet of puff pastry, or any homemade variety of pastry. Give it a go, it's delicious and impressive.
