After a Long Day at School, Treat Them!

Picky Palate Honeyed Apple Peanut Butter Tart

Chances are that if you have younger kids, they either just started or are about to start back in school and are STARVING the moment they get back home. We’re all for creative inspiration in the kitchen, and we’re loving this play on traditional apples and peanut butter from Jenny Flake of Picky Palate. It’s a sweet (and certainly yummy) way to reward them after a hard day of readin’ and ‘rithmetic. So why not surprise your kids with something unexpected when they walk in the door? Who knows, it might even fuel them to finish their homework faster!

    That is spectacular! Not only does it looks delicious, it looks so elegant!!! My daughter (at 11) has finally started to enjoy peanut butter. And I’m so thrilled because I can start making a PB&J for her lunch. But THIS… THIS is genius. Because I’ve also been trying to get her to like apples!!!!

    It’s like you wrote this post just for me!!!

    This looks so good! I may just try this but add another layer of pastry puff on top to hide the what’s inside b/c that is how picky my little picky eater is. Great idea!
