(apple tart)

To make these attractive latticed apple wafer tarts you will need a classic French mandolin or slicer. However, the tarts can still be made with simple apple slices cut thinly by hand. Apart from serving them as a light and delicious dessert, they actually make a great base for savory foods such as park, poultry, or foie gras.Gaufrette (apple tart) /sweets
