Freshly baked and filling the house with that wonderful scent, you can't go wrong with our delicious takes on America's favorite pie. The great flavors of this treasured dessert can be as various as the amount of apple varieties. Go mild with red apples, or tart things up a little with Granny Smith. Spices are also fun to customize, with the classic combo of cinnamon and nutmeg, or run wild with ginger and allspice. Let your personality shine through by creating pie crust designs that reflect the reason for your celebration.
Spiced Apple Two-Bite Tarts
The nutty pastry is absolutely delicious, like pecan shortbread. You can make the tart shells and filling the day before and assemble just before serving: Place the shells in an airtight container and chill the filling, bringing it to room temperature before placing it in the shells so it's not ice-cold. The crème fraîche dollop is more than just a pretty garnish; its rich, tangy flavor makes these sublime.
