Everyone needs an easy show-stopper dessert in their back pocket in this girl’s opinion. I’m talking about one that you can make for company even after having a glass of wine or two. That means it has to be easy. Haha! For me, two glasses of wine is when I become a somewhat sloppy cook, bwah. This easy apple tart is the perfect solution to all your dessert dilemmas and most of you will probably often have the ingredients on hand. Seriously, this recipe requires very basic ingredients and even if you don’t have everything, a quick stop at the store late and you will!
Trust me, one bite into this warm, sweet, flaky dessert and everyone that you serve it will be oh so happy! Even better, dish up this easy apple tart with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a mug of steaming hot coffee as an expected brunch add-on. Iced coffee goes just as well with it in the summertime, by the way. Then all you have to do is watch your guests totally bliss out! Impressing with minimal effort is where it’s at people! Hey, we’re busy moms. We want to treat our loved ones, but we don’t exactly have loads of time to spare. So, we cling to recipes that taste special, yet are time-saving at the same time!
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. It’s still delicious. And you won’t have to waste produce.
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 it’s baked through, but not burning.
As a bonus, to make this easy apple tart even prettier, sprinkle with a healthy dose of powdered sugar if you happen to have some handy!
That’s all there is to it! See? I told you that easy was the name of the game here. Personally, I think this easy apple tart is best served warm straight from the oven. So, if you want to prepare it ahead of time, make sure to slice up your apples and thaw out your puffed pastry well in advance. From there it’s just a few minutes of prep after dinner until it’s nosh time. Meanwhile, everyone will love relaxing while the delicious smell of baking apples tart fills the your home!
