Apple Tart

Finally, I baked this apple tart for my son who has been bugging me for a long time. However, I have never liked the sourness from green apples so I replaced them with red apples instead. Surprisingly, it tasted fantastic with a strong apple aroma and my kids love it. There are quite a number of steps to complete this apple tart but it was really rewarding with the final product and big smiles on everyone's faces.
