Tarte Tatin is a famous French upside-down apple tart. It’s made by covering the bottom of a skillet or cake pan with butter and sugar until it caramelizes, and then apples are layered on top. It is then covered in a simple dough like a pie crust called shortcrust pastry dough and then baked until finished.
The tart is said to be created by two French sisters who live in the Loire Valley and made a living serving this tart. The classic name for this dish is tarte des demoiselles Tatin, which translates as the tarte of two unmarried women named Tatin. Fun story.
