Apple Tarte Tatin – Upside Down Apple Pie

Tarte tatin was originally a French dish. It is very similar to an apple pie turned upside down. The dish, however, does not have to be made with apples, you can use pineapple or any other fruit for that matter. Believe me everybody will love it. It is one of the best desserts I have ever tasted.
