You don’t have to love Fall and the chilly temps to love this super easy apple tart recipe. It takes only a handful of ingredients, takes very little time to make, and is super versatile. Is this tart a breakfast item? Sure! Dessert? You bet! Tasty snack with a cup of coffee? Ok! I love foods that are flexible like that!
Beyond the simplicity of this recipe comes the presentation. It is one that always wows when I make it and one that most people assume is more challenging than it is to make. So if you are someone who needs a quick dessert or item to take to a potluck and want to appear to be a fancy baker, this apple tart needs to become your go to.
-1 sheet of frozen puff pastry dough, cut in half
-2 whole apples, cored, cut in half, and sliced incredibly thin
-1 cup of brown sugar
-Juice of 1/2 a lemon
-Dash of salt
Preheat oven to 425. Allow the puff pastry dough to thaw enough where it does not break during the unfolding process. Cut in half. Place apple slices in a bowl with lemon juice, brown sugar, and salt, and toss until apples are coated completely. Arrange the apple slices in a straight line down the middle of the pastry, overlapping. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from pan immediately and place on a serving platter. Drizzle with caramel sauce and powdered sugar if desired, or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
***You can cut the dough into thirds if you would like thinner tarts without as much pastry on the edges.
