tarte tatin

There is a lovely story about the Tarte Tatin, named after the two Sisters Stéphanie and Caroline Tatin who ran the Hotel Tatin in Lamotte Beuvron in France. The story says, that one day Stéphanie started to make a traditional apple pie but lets the apples cooking in the butter and sugar for too long. Smelling the burning, she tried to rescue the tarte by putting the pastry base on the top of the apples and finishing the cooking by putting the whole pan in the oven.
