Well-Designed Pie

I don't post about food too often, but I recently made a pie that I thought was beautifully designed.  That is, nice to look at as well as to make, an elegance in its simple assembly. You don't need a pie pan and can bake it right on a cookie sheet, this Rustic Apple Tart.

First you make a crust dough on a piece of parchment, and using the rolling pin, roll toasted nuts right into it.

Then you pre-cook an apple filling, this one has about 6 small apples, dates and honey.  Let it cool and plop in the middle of your crust.

Fold the edges up and over, forming a small bowl for the filling, patching up any tears.

Bake it for about 30 minutes!  Looks beautiful and the hand-made look adds to its appeal.  Voila!
