As the leaves start to change color and cheery pumpkins show up on doorsteps, summer seems like a distant memory and we're smack dab in the middle of fall.

NYT Cooking: This tart is inspired by a recipe by Jacquy Pfeiffer, from his cookbook “The Art of French Pastry.” The apples are caramelized first with sugar and spices, then spread in the pastry, topped with an almond, egg white and sugar topping, and baked.
