Finally! The weather is starting to cool down here in Southern California. We may get our two weeks of Fall-ish temperatures before it goes back up into the 90’s again. While it’s cool, I’m going to take advantage of being able to bake in the middle of the day and make this Easy Rustic Apple Tart as a surprise for dessert tonight.

  1. Hey!! So, I’ve never known what a baking apple is…. I know my Gala’s, Pink Lady’s, and Fuji’s, but are baking apples more tart? Like Granny Smith? This is one area that I’m endlessly confused in, and will probably take a couple explanations for it to sink into my brain. I love the recipe for the Apple Pie Spice Mix too! You’re a genius!
