Everyone needs a easy show stopper dessert in their back pocket. One that you can make for company even after having two glasses of wine. For me, two glasses of wine is when I become a sloppy cook, ha. This easy apple tart is the perfect solution and I often even have the ingredients on hand. Trust me, one bite into this warm sweet flaky dessert and everyone will be happy! Even better serve up this easy apple tart with some vanilla ice cream and a mug of coffee and watch your guests bliss out.
Easy Apple Tart (serves about 4)
1 sheet of puffed pastry cut in half
3 apples sliced very thin
About 3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
pinch of cinnamon (if handy)
Preheat oven to 415 degrees. Coat a tray with cooking spray and then place the puffed pastry slices in half on the sheet.
Slice up your apples and place into a mixing bowl. While this recipe works best with fresh crisp apples, I’ve also used it with apples that needed using up. Its still delicious.
Add the sugar, salt and cinnamon to the apples and stir them up. Set aside for a few minutes so that they get a sugary gooey coating.
Add the apples in a layer on each of the pastry slices.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes. Check to make sure that its cooked but not burning.
As a bonus, to make this easy apple tart even prettier, sprinkle with a healthy dose of powdered sugar if handy!
That’s all there is to it! Personally I think this easy apple tart is best served warm straight from the oven. So if you want to prep ahead of time make sure to slice up your apples and thaw out your puffed pastry in advance. From there its just a few minutes of prep after dinner and everyone will love relaxing while the delicious smell of baking apples tart fills the air! Enjoy lovelies!
