Sunday sweets – Fine apple tart

Posted on: December 28th, 2009 by admin No Comments

Ahh Christmas time- or End of year, or other celebrations… Time to eat too much, spend lazy days with family and eat again.


If you’re in need of a sweet treat, but don’t want to feel the Christmas bloat after you’ve eaten it. Try this fast, simple recipe that everyone will want a piece of.

  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • 3-4 small green apples, peeled and cored
  • 1/2 c caster sugar
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • cinnamon and thick cream for serving

Preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF)

Cut the pastry into 4 rectangles. Put them on a lined baking tray. Finely slice the apples and place them over the top of the pastry in a line of overlapping slices. Sprinkle with the sugar and top each with a little dob of butter.

Pop the tarts in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the pastry and apples are a light golden brown. When out of the oven sprinkle with cinnamon and icing sugar and serve with vanilla ice-cream or thickened cream.

Serves 4
