Easy Apple Tart

I found this recipe on the Tesco website & thought it might go down well – and I was right, DH & DD1(4) scoffed it down with a load of custard. DD2 (1.5) didn’t seem too keen, but she has been having a bad day with her teeth, so fx she likes it more next time (I have been told to make it again next weekend!)
