Martine’s Lemon and Apple Tart

I am posting late this week, Thursdays with Dorie?, because I wanted to make this tart for my anniversary which happens to be today. This monumental year of 2020 is having me celebrate all kinds of milestones at home. I can also see my planned vacation, a cruise, vanish before my eyes. But on to…
