    WORTH the PEELING!!!

    Tina Ohman from Palm Bay, FL

    Made this for a co-worker's birthday and brought along whipped cream since we can't accomodate ice cream...anyone who loves Dutch apple pie should just LOVE this! I used a regular springform pan and trimmed with a pie cutter, so no worries if you don't have the tart pan.

    A Bit Disappointing

    This had nice flavor but I probably won't make it again. The apples were dry.

    Worth the wait !

    NANCE NICHOLLS from DAVENPORT, WA

    I just hadn't gotten around to trying this sooner however I had apples I needed to use and this looked like the day to bake it. It is a keeper. I made it in the springform pan - aroma baking is wonderful and so is the flavor with the butterscotch chips. I'll be making this again soon.

    Apple Butterscotch Tart

    Doreen Penge from HAMPTON, NJ

    I was innodated with apples after a day of apple picking and made this tart. My kids like caramel apples, but can't eat them with ease due to braces. This was a great alternative with a little different taste. They were very satisfied. My husband doesn't usually go for dessert, but he ate and really enjoyed this one!!!

    HEAVEN!

    Jasmine Cody from FARMINGDALE, NY

    This was SO easy to make and tasted incredible! The added bonus was that the house smelled wonderful while it was baking too. Everyone wanted to know where I bought the FABULOUS dessert! The only change I would make to the recipe is to serve it with PRALINE ice cream; much better than vanilla as far as we were concerned. Pure heaven and a huge hit!

    Mini Apple Butterscotch tarts

    Louetta Nicolle from TORRANCE, CA

    I made this tart last week took two slices to my sister-in-law,( she is almost blind and can no longer bake) she phoned me later and said how GOOD it was so yesterday I made the recipe again but, this time I doubled the recipe,put the apples into 4 small 6-inch springform pans and baked them 30 minutes, they turned out wonderful. each little pie is enough for 2, I froze two of them, and took them to her, so she can defrost them when needed.

    Fall Favorite

    JAN WILKINS from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    We have bake sales each weekend. Everyone always makes, cake, cookies, brownies, etc., so I decided that I would make a pie....this pie....my husband took one look at it and said he wanted it and I should make something else, I told him if he wanted it, he would have to buy it....he did, so I just ended up making a money donation.

    To quote my 10 year old neice "This tastes like Fall". My family really loved this tart & I did make it in a springform pan, which was a snap to remove.

    Nice change from apple pie

    Krys Geldart from Clarksville, TN

    The butterscotch was a added surprise to this tart. The flavour balanced well with the green apples. A springform pan should be used instead of a tart pan.

    pan size

    Hallee Humler from SPRINGFIELD, VT

    I would suggest not using a pie pan if you don't have the pan called for in the recipe. using a pie pan caused the apples to mound up too high. A springform pan would be better than a pie pan.

    Apple Butterscotch Tart

    Lin Rudy from Downers Grove, IL

    This recipe was JUST TOO EASY AND QUICK !!! The aroma filled our home with mouthwatering goodness -- we almost couldn't wait for it to cool. It's PERFECT for the fall. I cut a few leaves out of the remaining pastry dough, brushed them with cream and just a tad of food gel colors blended to match autumn leaves and placed them around the outer edges of the tart. Beautiful and Scrumptious!!!

    Apples, Butterscotch=Yum!

    Marty Joyce from COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

    My favorite fruit apples and butterscotch too. This is a great autumn dessert. I added walnuts and we had vanilla ice cream with it. This is easy and every woman at our dinner wanted the recipe. Thank you for sharing it.

    healthier version

    Michelle Mondro from Lansing, MI

    I decided to cut the fat content of the tart by leaving out the crust and serving it like a crisp. Also, instead of sugar, use a sugar substitute. That cut the calories and it was still yummy. It's almost too good to be true!

    Better than plain apple pie

    Here Today--Gone Today

    eileen dunne from edison, NJ

    When my son came home from the service for a visit--I wanted to make his favorite apple pie dessert. I decided to try this for a change. Did my son like it? He ate the entire Tart spoonful-by-spoonful as we sat chatting. Left none for the rest of the family. I had to bake another so we could taste how gooooood it was.

    Scrumptious

    Phyllis Cole from Prairie du Rocher, IL

    This was a big hit at our house - liked it better than caramel apple pie. Had to pat the topping in place to keep it on the apples though. I also stirred the butterscotch pieces in with the apples rather than sprinkling them on top. Very juicy - might want to add 1 T of tapioca and/or put something underneath tart as is bakes to catch running juices. Granny Smiths worked really well with the butterscotch.
