There’s gonna be some meeeeelting the morning after Halloween, though it ain’t what you’re expecting.
Rest assured, the spirits summoned for this ghostly gin and tonic gelatin hail from a bottle, not the supernatural. Whew.
A tarte Tatin is nothing more than a tart turned upside down, nothing less than pastry perfection. Its name is French for “caramely apple goodness atop a buttery crust.”
