Recipe by Daniel Myers
It seems a bit unusual to grate apples, and it does make this recipe a bit messier to make than the typical fruit tart. Still, it's a quick and easy apple pie, and it tastes delicious.
4 - 5 apples
6 figs, chopped
1/4 cup raisins
1 1/2 tsp. powder douce
1/4 tsp. salt
Peel, core, and grate apples. Add figs, raisins, and spices. Mix well and put into tart crust. Bake at 350° until done - about 40 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
