The other night while my son was at Hebrew school, his class was discussing the Garden of Eden. He happened to mention that apples are one of his favorite fruits. His teacher, in turn, asked him if I ever make apple pie. His response? “Every night.”

In fact, I don’t make apple pie on nightly basis; I do make some type of apple dessert (usually a tart or a crisp) several times per week. This makes my boys very happy, and I like happy boys! Often times when they get home from school, the first thing I hear is “did you make ‘apple pie’.” I hope your little ones like this tart crust (filled with yummy, healthy fruit) as much as my guys do.

Here are some of my other dessert recipes:
