Apple Tart recipe

People always talk about pregnant chicks and their cravings.  One of my cravings during the past couple of months has been sweets.  Anything dessert like really.  With this craving comes a large desire to bake.  Ryan actually mentioned how often I've been baking lately.  It's not like he's complaining about my desire to bake ... I think he enjoys all of the treats that I make.

Friday night I looked around the kitchen and realized I had puff pastry sheets in the freezer and some apples in the fridge.  Those seemed like 2 perfectly good ingredients for dessert so after some googling I found the perfect recipe ... "Quick & Easy (and Yummy) Apple Tart" from the Pioneer Woman's website.

  • 1 whole Sheet Puffed Pastry, Cut Into Thirds
  • 3 whole Apples, Cored, Halved, And Sliced, But Not Peeled (I only used 3 ... her recipe had 4)
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon (not included on her recipe)

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 415 degrees.

Place puffed pastry rectangles onto a baking pan that’s been sprayed with nonstick spray. Add sugar, salt, and cinnamon to apples. Stir to combine. Allow to sit for a few minutes.

Arrange apple slices on the pastry rectangles in a straight line, overlapping as you go. 

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown.

Remove from pan immediately and place on a serving platter. Serve with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.

Such an easy recipe to follow and make.  The results were the perfect dessert for after dinner.
