When you’re feeling a little peckish …

These puff pastry apple tarts are great for a tea time snack. All you need are apples, a sheet of frozen puff pastry and some honey.  I tried making them over the weekend and loved how easy and delicious they were.  The recipe called for Golden Delicious apples but I couldn’t find them in my supermarket, and used Korean apples instead.  They still turned out great – the light and buttery puff pastry and  warm baked apples covered in honey and cinnamon was a wonderful combination.  This recipe is a definite keeper.

Recipe is from Laura of An Uneducated Palate – who writes brilliantly about her culinary adventures.

Puff Pastry Apple Tart (serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 3 medium Golden Delicious apples
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • sprinkle of vanilla powder*
  • icing sugar (powdered sugar)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 375° F
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Unroll puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface, and roll out to a 12″ x 12″ square
  • Place the puff pastry on the baking sheet and pierce it all over with a fork
  • Peel and core apples, cut them in half, then slice them very thin
  • Arrange slices on the pastry
  • Drizzle with honey
  • Sprinkle with vanilla powder (if you prefer, you can substitute cinnamon for the vanilla powder)
  • Bake for 30 – 35 minutes, until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown
  • Let cool slightly, then garnish with powdered sugar and serve with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
