We had so many apples last week so, I decided to make a vegan apple tart for the family. I love apples. Apples are delicious and the beautiful thing about apples is they come in a variety flavors. My first time visiting an apple orchard I didn’t realize it was so many species of apples. My favorite is honey crisp apples and before I discovered honey crisp, gale apple were my top choice. The beautiful thing about apples is they are excellent for a variety of desserts from cakes, donuts, pies, tarts, and even cupcakes.
In this blog post I share a yummy vegan apple tart. This vegan apple tart is easy to make with minimal prep required. I bought the apples a couple weeks ago and my husband kept asking me when are you going to make the vegan apple tart? I was busy last week preparing customer’s orders and finishing up last minute gifts for our son’s 15th birthday. I was determined to make the vegan apple tart because they have been waiting for it for weeks. Have fun making this vegan apple tart. Feel free to switch out the apples for your favorite apple.
