Hi WLOW readers! I’m Marion from Life Tastes Good, and I’m so happy to be guest posting for Julie while she is busy being a newlywed! Excuse me a moment while I write directly to Julie… I’m so excited for you, Julie, and wish you many, many happy years of wedded bliss! Thank you for allowing me to crash your blog! I hope you like what I’ve prepared for you today <smile>.
It really doesn’t get much easier than this Apple Tart recipe. Not only is it beautiful, but it is bursting with sweet apple flavor. The puff pasty is buttery, light, and super flaky too! I love how it puffs up around the apple slices, keeping all of their moist deliciousness nestled neatly inside the flaky crust. When you serve this to your friends and family, they will no doubt be impressed with your mad pastry chef skills!
We’ll keep it between us that you don’t need to be anything remotely like a pastry chef to pull this one off! You simply need to thaw a puff pastry sheet just enough so you can unfold it without breaking it. I told you this would be easy! While the puff pasty is thawing, core and slice 2 to 3 apples. I use a mandoline to get them nice and thin. Then I toss the apples with some brown sugar and a pinch of salt and let them sit a little. The sugar will bring out the apple juices and make them taste even better! Try not to eat all the sugary, apple-y goodness!!
When the puff pastry is thawed enough to unfold, cut the sheet in half and place both halves on a parchment lined baking sheet. Fill each half with apple slices and pop the baking sheet into the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes.
While the tarts are cooking, I mix up some Homemade Caramel Sauce, because when it comes to caramel, I jump at any excuse to make it! I’m a bit obsessed with the rich, creamy, buttery goodness. Not to mention, caramel and apples just belong together like peanut butter and chocolate. It’s a natural thing <wink>
Enjoy these tarts hot and fresh right out of the oven. Drizzle with warm Caramel Sauce and serve with vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat!
- 1 sheet Puff Pastry, thawed and cut in half
- 2-3 apples, cored and sliced thinly into half moons
- 1 cup brown sugar
- pinch of sea salt
- Homemade Caramel Sauce (or buy your favorite pre-made sauce)
- Preheat oven to 400° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Thaw the puff pastry about 15-20 minutes until it is just thawed enough to unfold.
- While the puff pasty is thawing, core and slice 2 to 3 apples. I use a mandoline to get them nice and thin. Then I toss the apples with some brown sugar and a pinch of salt and let them sit a little. The apples will release their juices and combine with the sugar to make a sweet, sweet sauce. It is sooo good!
- When the puff pastry is thawed enough, unfold and cut the sheet in half. Place both halves on a parchment lined baking sheet. Fill each half with apple slices and pop the baking sheet into the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes. The pastry will puff up around the apples and get a slightly browned and crispy.
- While the tarts are cooking, mix up the homemade caramel sauce.
- Serve these tarts hot and fresh right out of the oven, drizzled with warm Caramel Sauce and dollop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
