Puff Pastry Apple Tart

During the fall, we have a huge abundance of apples and varieties to choose from. This apple tart recipe is very simple and delicious.

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thaw according to directions
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple jelly, melted

  1. Unfold pastry and place on lightly floured board. Roll out evenly to make a bit thinner.
  2. Cut 3/4" strip off each long side. Place rectangle on an ungreased baking sheet. Prick evenly with fork. Brush long sides with water. "Paste" on strips along each long edge.
  3. Peel apples. Cut in half lengthwise and cut out stem and core. Place apples flat side down on board and cut across into paper thin slices.
  4. Arrange slices in overlapping rows on tart shell. Sprinkle with sugar and bake 20 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and apples tender.
  5. Brush warm melted apple jelly on warm tart. Serve warm with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
  • Makes 4 servings.
