Normandy Apple Tart
1 batch of sweet tart dough enough for a 9 inch pan, partially cooked (about 8 min. )and cooled
For the filling:
2-21/2 cups of pear or applesauce
For the topping:
2 medium granny smith apples
1 egg, beaten with ½ tsp. water for egg wash
First make your tart dough and cool it all the way through. Next pour apple/pear sauce into crust till it reaches almost to the top of the crust. Peel and core apples for topping. Cut each apple into 4 pieces, and then slice into 7 thin sections. Arrange the slices in slightly overlapping concentric circles on the applesauce, starting at the edge and laying them down so their tips are against the crust. After finishing laying the apples, brush with egg wash. Bake at 400 for 50 min. Don’t worry if the apples burn a little! Cool and serve with whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream

2. Beets: Contains phenylalanine, an amino acid that helps relay signals from one brain cell to another.
3. Blueberries: Excellent source of antioxidants and “anthocyanins,” compounds thought to help protect brain cells from toxins, improves use of glucose in the brain, and promotes communication between brain cells.
4. Broccoli: Packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients that help protect brain tissue from toxins.
5. Carrots: High in beta carotene and other natural substances that help protect brain tissue from toxins.
6. Chicken: High in tyrosine, an amino acid required for the production of the alertness chemicals dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. When your brain is producing these, you think and react more quickly, and feel more motivated, attentive and mentally energetic.

13. Pork: Loaded with vitamin B1, which protects myelin, a fatty substance that helps facilitate communication among cells.
14. Romaine lettuce: High in folate, a B vitamin important for memory and nerve cell health.
15. Spinach: Packed with iron, which is involved memory, concentration, and mental functioning.
16. Tuna: Full of omega-3 fatty acids, which help build and maintain myelin.
