Rustic apple tart (tarta rustica de manzanas)

I really wanted to make a recipe with apples, it's true that it's summer here (and I know in many sites is snowing sigh!) but I always have apples, and found this recipe I had saved some time ago.
It's the kind of cake that I love a rustic tart is really delicious.

Crumble de arándanos con helado de vainilla 

Este postre es uno de los más deliciosos que he hecho el último tiempo (según mi familia).
A mi me encantan los arándanos o las moras.
Se puede hacer con arándanos frescos o congelados o con moras.
De hecho cuando compro arándanos o frambuesas o moras las congelo . Asi se que las puedo hacer cuando quiera y se conservan perfectas.
Con el calor que está haciendo no durarían nada.
Tmabien en esta época congelo  parav tener en el invierno.
