I’ve been wanting to make this dessert for so long but every time I had a hankering for it, we didn’t have any apples, or we didn’t have any puff pastry. Plus I always thought because it seems so very simple with very little ingredients, it probably doesn’t taste nice. Wrong. It is simple but it’s oh-so-nice and so quick to put together.
I finally got the chance to make this during the day with some help from my little girl. You see we have a whole lot of apples now since it’s a regular in the school lunch box but lately they haven’t made their way to the lunch box because my little girl has been away from school the last couple of days. After a mild asthma attack over the weekend, the doctor thought it best that she stay home for a few days. So yesterday I thought to use up those apples and do some baking with her help because that always cheers her up. It cheers me up.
Whoever invented ready frozen puff pastry sheets deserves a massive round of applause!
Clap clap clap clap clap!
Genius. They don’t take long to thaw, are versatile and they are a time/life saver!
Looks great, smells amazing and tastes good too! I suggest to always have frozen puff pastry sheets in your freezer because you can always whip up this amazingly super easy dessert whenever you want!
Easy Apple Tart
2 ready-made puff pastry sheets (cut in half)
3-4 medium-sized apples (quartered, cored and thinly sliced)
50g butter (melted)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 heaped Tbsp of brown sugar
icing sugar (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 190ºC. Lightly grease a baking tray and place puff pastry sheets on greased baking tray.
Add ground cinnamon into melted butter and mix well. Set aside.
Place apples evenly in a straight, overlapping line on top of the puff pastry sheets. Leave a gap on the top and bottom. Brush the apples with the cinnamon butter and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Serve with a light dusting of icing sugar.
