Apple Tarte Tatin

The upside-down French dessert Tarte Tatin has a charming tale behind it.  The story goes that it was concocted in the 1880’s, in a hotel owned by two sisters, Stephanie and Caroline Tatin.  A tired Stephanie was making an apple tart but overcooked the apples, so she tried to rescue it by putting the pastry base on top.  Alternatively, she may have simply baked a tart upside-down by accident.
