Easy Caramel Apple Tart

Servings: 6 -8


  • 1 sheet puff pastry (half a box)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 whole apple, cored, halved and sliced
  • Store-bought caramel sauce, for serving
  • 2-3 Tbsp chopped pecans


  • Prepare the apple and peel or don't peel depending on preferences. 
  • 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. 
  • 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.
  • 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!
