This easy apple tart recipe is made with only 5-ingredients! It’s breakfast, dessert, and a snack all rolled into one recipe. I KNOW.
I’m fairly certain that only 23% of all Californians can actually drive.
Add in the fact it’s been raining cats and dogs for the past two days, and you can bet that 23% decreases by about half.
It’s pretty much a train wreck.
You’ve either got the people who drive as if the rain doesn’t exist, changing lanes a ridiculous amount of times, causing my windshield wipers to work overtime and my heart into overdrive (because you were straight INCHES from hitting my car), or the ones who drive so slowly it causes everyone to slam on their brakes…
Every 4 seconds.
Seeing your life flash before eyes is so much fun (cue all the sarcasm).
Not only do I deserve a medal, I deserve pretty much all the comfort food on the planet:
–Biscuits (we all know my affinity for buttery, flaky biscuits)
–Sweet Rolls (I’ll take a whole pan with extra icing)
-this Apple Tart
Basically, this apple tart is what every person needs after the adventure it is to drive in a monsoon with Nascar-wannabes.
It’s only 5-ingredients, takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish, and tastes like sweet, sweet comfort (and life).
It’s a culinary miracle.
Puff pastry is a thing of glory.
You can buy it in the frozen dessert section, thaw it, and turn it into pretty much any dessert (or savory dish) you want.
Usually, puff pastry and I go the turnover route (*cough* Strawberry Nutella Turnovers *cough*), but today, we thought it was time to mix it up a bit.
Get a little crazy.
Tart ourselves up.
Ah, what a time to be alive.
Puff pastry for the win!
- 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
- 2 large apples thinly sliced (I used honey crisp but granny smith or gala would work as well)
- 2 Tbsp butter softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unfold puff pastry and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
With a knife, carefully spread butter over the dough, stopping about 1/2 inch from the edge of the dough.
Sprinkle the dough with brown sugar, stopping about 1/2 inch from the edge of the dough.
Place apples over the dough in a line, overlapping as you go (also leaving a 1/2 inch border). Sprinkle the apples with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until puff pastry is puffed and golden brown.
