What a Tart!

A couple of weeks ago, I was not being oh-so-very conscientious at the grocery store and didn't realize that I purchased two three-pound bags of apples. Now, usually, that would only mean that I would have four days before I needed to buy more apples, but these weren't big sellers at Casa Diggs.
So today as I tossed a funky apple, the others gazed at me as if to say, "Is that to be our destiny as well?" Naturally, a pie needed to be made. Then I remembered seeing a recipe for a free form tart that looked so amazing. I did utilize a tin, but it still has a very rustic feel. I'll be sharing it with Neighbor Teri and the kids. I'll let you know if it was tasty, but I'll likely keep my lips buttoned if it turns out lousy.
PostScript: It was a delightful dessert. And ridiculously simple -- basically apples, butter and sugar plus a basic crust -- and I think I prefer it over a gooey cinnamon-y apple pie. You should make one. Today!
