Caramel Apple Oat Frangipane Tart
one freshly baked nine inch pie crust
one can or jar dulce de leche
6 medium cooking apples, peeled and cut into eighths
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon water
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
one recipe oatmeal frangipane (see tomorrow's post)
Preheat oven to 320◦F.
Spread the dulce de leche over the crust bottom.
Place the apples, sugar, water and cinnamon in a wide pot. Bring to a simmer and cook until apples are just beginning to soften. They will continue to cook in the oven. Drain well.
Arrange the apples over the dulce de leche.
Spread with oatmeal frangipane.
Bake for about 40 minutes until frangipane is golden and set and a toothpick inserted in the frangipane comes out clean.
Serve hot, warm, cooled, or even cold. If reheated, the oven is much better used than the microwave.
