Tarte tatin traditionnelle

Tarte Tatin Apple Pie

A Caramelized Upside-Down Apple Pie
The French Tarte Tatin is a traditional apple pie with a twist: it's cooked upside down, apples down below and pastry up top, and flipped onto the presentation dish while it's still hot. This way the apples are slow-cooked in caramel, which makes them soft and flavorsome, while the pastry remains crispy. Why upside down? What a strange idea!!
