This tart is one of the best apple recipes I've made in a very long time. The pastry is tender and buttery and ...oh, so good! Patiently browning the butter, which is blended with eggs, flour and vanilla beans is worth the effort. Fresh sliced apples are lightly sauteed with a little butter and sugar, then brandy is added for some extra "pop". Last, sprinkle some golden raisins and then bake to a golden brown. Wow! Thar';s what I said with the first bite. This recipe comes from Food Network';s Anne Burrell, who is one of my favorite chefs
