When I was in college, I brought a couple of my city friends to my small town for the weekend. They were amazed by the stars, by seeing a cow in person, the quiet and all the space and trees, including the apple trees in my parent's side yard. So we picked apples and made a homemade apple pie. Though I don't have apples from my parent's house, these tarts reminded me of the first time I made homemade pie crust.
Once I made the dough recipe, I split it into 8 equal balls to make mini tarts. Also, I only used 5 apples, 3 that I sauteed up and 2 that I sliced for the top.
