We recently attended the wedding of Greg’s former coworker, a friend who has since moved to Michigan for graduate school. I loved seeing all the apple-baking items on the couples’ registry; apple picking is such a fun way for Californians to take advantage of autumn in Michigan!
In addition to giving them an old-school peeler/corer, we wanted to give my all-time favorite apple recipe. I had the crazy idea of putting the recipe on the back of a life-size tart photo and putting that inside the tart pan (such a Greg idea). And it actually worked! The angle isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty convincing, right?
I had a few photos of the tart from our autumn party last year, so I just measured the pan and resized a photo to fit. The pan is larger than 8.5×11″, but printers and office supply stores can easily print on 11×17″ paper. I printed the recipe on the back, cut it out and used a little bit of tape to affix it to the pan’s label.
Now I’m just waiting patiently for a little bit of Michigan apple goodness to arrive in the mail. It’ll be any day now, I’m sure!
