Caramelized Apple Tart

Any desserts that includes apples are probably right up there with my favorites. This recipe can be knocked out quickly and looks fancy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box puff pastry
  • 1 large Braeburn apple, or 2 small
  • 1-2 tbs. butter, softened
  • 2-3 tbs. raw sugar
  • 1 tbs. powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Roll out the puff pastry thinly on a lightly floured surface to a 2mm (~1/16″) thickness.
  3. Cut out 3 rounds about 4″ diameter and place on a parchment lined baking sheets.
  4. Prick the pastry all over with a fork.
  5. Sprinkle a bit of the raw sugar on top of the pastry.
  6. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples.
  7. Arrange the apple slices in a circle on top of the pastry discs, overlapping them slightly.
  8. Place a few pieces of apple rings in the middle to finish.
  9. Brush them with softened butter and sprinkle with another layer of raw sugar.
  10. Bake the tarts for 10 – 15 minutes until the pastry is cooked.
  11. Add another sprinkle of raw sugar and place under broiler for a few minutes or use blow torch to caramelize.
  12. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve the tarts warm, with a scoop of ice cream.
