This tart is almost too pretty to eat. We love the unsuspecting hint of lime with the traditional flavors. For more great recipes visit The Chew's site.


  • 4 tart apples (peeled cored and quartered)
  • 2 sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into pieces the same size as the apples)
  • 1 flaky butter crust
  • ½ cup Brandy
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • Lime zest and juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (toasted)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Prepare the brandy pecan glaze: Pour the brandy in a small pot and

    reduce by half. Add the lime zest, lime juice, maple syrup, butter and salt

    to taste. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 – 7

    minutes. Add in pecans. Remove from heat and set aside.

    Heat a 9" skillet to medium high heat. While

    searing the apples and sweet potatoes, place them alternately in the pan

    so they are squeezed tightly together. Pour ½ the syrup over.

    Prepare crust by rolling it out 1/8 inch thick. Place crust on top of apples

    and sweet potatoes and tuck edges into the pan. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes

    or until crust is golden brown and apples and potatoes are soft enough for

    a toothpick to be inserted easily.

    Remove pan from oven and let cool off a bit. Place a serving dish on top

    of pan, and carefully flip over. Crust will be on the bottom.

    Serve warm with remaining sauce and vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
