Apple Puff Pastry Tart

Essentially, this is an apple pie for people who don’t like making pies, or indeed, don’t like to spend too long in the kitchen full-stop. Taking less than an hour to prepare and requiring no pastry-making skill required whatsoever, you just need to be a dab hand will the peeler and know how to turn an oven on – easy as, er… pie.

Cost:

£0.58 per Person

Easy

  • Ingredients

    225g Ready-Made Puff Pastry Approximately Half a Block
    5-6 Cox Apples
    Juice of 1 Lemon
    25g Butter Diced into Small Pieces
    1tbsp Brown Sugar
    2tbsp Apricot Jam

How to Cook

1. Preheat your oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6

2. Flour a surface and roll out your pastry until it’s approximately 35cm round. Lay on top of a lined baking tray then prick all over with a fork. 

3. Peel, core and quarter your apples then thinly slice them. Toss them in the lemon juice and arrange them on top of the pastry leaving a gap around the edge of around an inch. Use your fingers to make a lip around the edge.

4. Sprinkle the sugar over the apples and then cover with the diced butter.

5. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Whilst you are waiting, gently heat the apricot jam in a saucepan and then brush the surface of the tart with it. Return to the oven for a further 5-10 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream or double cream.

Spruce it Up

Instead of create one large tart, try making individual ones by rolling your pastry to around the thickness of a pound coin and then cut into portion-sized rectangles. Then carry on as usual, laying the apples in the middle and cooking for around the same time.

Try Something a Little Different

Instead of apples, try using pears. Just peel, core and slice thinly as you would with the apple. If you want to make the tart a little more festive then you can also sprinkle with ground cinnamon or grate over some fresh nutmeg.
