E.G. "une tarte AUX pommes"...My question, why AUX with two feminine nouns, tarte et pommes?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Compound nouns formed with prepositions à, de, en"

Nevermind, I believe the answer is, plural prepositions in this case are genderless.....it wasn't immediately obvious to me, then it came to my mind after I posed my question.

Yes, that's correct. À+les = aux, regardless of gender.
