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.
