EASY CARAMEL APPLE TART

EASY CARAMEL APPLE TART: Butter With A Side of Bread


I was watching The Food Network one day on TV and saw The Pioneer Woman make this super easy Apple Tart. I’ve had it on my list of recipes for ages and finally decided to put it together. I love how simple the recipe is, yet the results look very elegant. I altered the recipe to allow for more caramel sauce, which I thought really took the flavor to a different level. Add puff pastry to your grocery list and give it a try!

This recipe comes together very quickly, however you do need to allow for 45 minutes or so for the puff pastry to defrost.

Easy Caramel Apple Tart

  • 1 whole sheet puffed pastry {there are 2 in a box}
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 apple, cored, halved and sliced
  • Store-bought caramel sauce, for serving
  • 2-3 TBSP chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Place the puffed pastry rectangle onto a baking pan that’s been sprayed with nonstick spray or lined with parchment paper. The pastry unfolds into 3 sections- I cut one section off and added it to the bottom of the other 2 sections to allow for my long, rectangular baking dish. Shape the pastry into some form of square/ rectangle, depending on what type of baking dish you use.

To peel or not peel the apples: I’m undecided. I think it looks better with the peel on as the small amount of red adds a nice color to the dessert. However I personally think it’d taste better if the peels were removed. Do what you want!
Add the sugar, salt and lemon juice to the apples. Stir to combine. Allow to sit for a few minutes.Arrange the apple slices on the pastry rectangles in a straight line, overlapping as you go. I drizzled a small amount of caramel on the apples before baking- think about 1 TBSP- and try to not go near the edges of the pastry.

Bake until the pastry is puffed and golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.Remove from the pan immediately and place on a serving platter. Drizzle more caramel sauce on top and finish with chopped pecans. I think it’d be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as well! Enjoy!
