I know, I know. It has been months since I have posted on my blog and for that I apologize. I got caught up in other stuff and had no will to do any DIY’s or cook. But thankfully I am ready to give my blog life and get this thing rolling once again.
I decided to make this really easy apple tart that came out surprisingly great.
- The average frozen puff pastry that you can buy at any grocery store.
- 5 granny smith apples
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
- 1 tablespoon of melted butter
- Less than 1/3 a cup of sugar
And that’s it! (Well you can add some love in it, of course)
First you have to let your puff pastry thaw out, give it about 20-30 minutes and it should be done. You will definitely be able to tell when it’s done, you just lightly touch it with your finger and if there is an indentation, guess what, it’s done.
While your puff pastry is thawing out, this is the perfect time for you to cut your apples up. I took the skin off of the apples first then sliced them up in a mandoline, but you can slice them by hand, it just might take a little longer. Once they were all sliced I put them in the bowl and added my cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. I mixed them all up and let them hang out.
In the meantime, why not preheat your oven? It should be preheated at 350 degrees.
Once your puff pastry is all thawed out, roll it out a little bit so it’s stretched out. Make sure not to really “work” the pastry, we don’t want it to get messed up. Place the pastry on your pan which should be lined with parchment paper. Then working from the outside to the inside place your apples around the puff pastry so they’re overlapping.
Now once your apples are in place you can sprinkle your sugar all over them. Chop up your butter and place it throughout your pastry.
The pastry took about 30-40 minutes to cook but this will vary so just keep an eye on it. You will definitely smell it once it’s ready.
It was light, not too sweet and honestly one of the best desserts I’ve made. I placed a spoonful of french vanilla ice cream on mine and it was perfect. ❤
I hope you guys try it out! I wanted to make it a little bit different and unique but I figured I should probably try to make it the normal way first.
Let me know if you try it out, I’d love the feedback ❤
Have a great Saturday!
