Today was the all time record slow news day. Luckily I found the Journal of Conceptual Modeling… that should keep the IA’s on the list busy. The rest of you can bake pie.

How to make an apple tart, French style. easy and tasty.
break egg into mixing bowl, add sugar and salt, mix vigorously with a fork or whisk until white (but not foamy) then progressively add flour. when spoon doesn’t work, use hands to mix. when all flour is all there, crumble with your hands until mixture is like coarse sand (make sure all large chunks are well broken up into a fine mixture).
cut butter into small pieces,then add to mixture. work into a homogenous mixture.
rest one hour in the refrigerator
take out, then work a little to soften, and then roll out and line shallow tart dish (9 in).
peel apples (tart-tasting. Jonathan, roma but never red delicious–about 5) and quarter, removing core. slice each quarter in half, then half again, making thin slices. layer these slices in a circular spiral pattern. Sprinkle lightly with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
bake for about 30 minutes at about 400 When apples are soft and crust is nice and brown, it’s probably done.
