I love fruit pastry. In fact, a lot of the baking recipes I’ve blogged involve fruits. Jeff and I would have these baked goods for breakfast with our coffee or as a snack with hot tea at night. So when I saw this recipe from Ina Garten, I couldn’t wait to try it. It’s unbelievably easy and delicious. All you need are apples, puff pastry sheets, a little bit of sugar, and unsalted butter.
As usual, I do a little tweak to the original recipe:
- Instead of Granny Smith apples, I use Honey Crisp apples (since these tend to be sweeter than Granny Smith)
- I put the pastries in the oven for about 30 minutes instead of 40. I think my oven gets super hot and I try to avoid charring the bottom parts of the apple tart.
- I also prefer to go without using the apricot jelly and Calvados. I think the apple tart taste great as it is.
The warm, buttery, flaky, light, sweet and tart, and refreshing qualities make these apple tarts so inviting. What a nice fall treat!
Have a great weekend!
