Merry Christmas this Holiday recipe will be a favorite for years to come! Apple Tarte Tatin is a traditional French pastry dish, that was created accident but ended up being a well loved dessert!

Nutritionist Frances Largeman-Roth explains how to make the traditional French dessert Apple Tarte Tatin. While the name may sound fancy, this is an easy-to-make recipe that is both sweet and satisfying after a hearty Christmas Dinner.

First you need to coat your pan with butter. Then take one sheet of puff pastry and roll out to the size of your pan. Place back into fridge so it doesn't melt.

Next, place brown sugar in pan, the brown sugar will melt and caramelize once placed in the oven. Take thinly sliced apple slices and place around the pan creating two layers. Turn the pan on and let sit for 20 minutes on the stove.

Once cooked for 20 minutes place in oven for another 20 minutes. Once apples are fully cooked take out of oven. Now all you have to do is take the crust and place on the tart. Put the pan back in the oven and cook for another 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool. Once cool flip your pan over onto a plate. Inverting the tart can be tricky so be careful to make sure it comes out in one piece.

Apples are important to incorporate into your diet, they are stuffed with cancer and disease fighting antioxidants. In a time of fast food and junk food being the go to snack, tasty recipes for fruits can help get everyone back in shape!
