Okay, I promise I don't spend everyday all day baking. I do other things too. hahaha. I just really, really love creating new things. So I've been doing a lot of it lately. Here's what I did today.

It's a recipe I adapted from several different ones. It's really simple, anyone could do it.

Rustic Apple Tart

Ingredients:

1 Frozen Puff Pastry, thawed
2-3 red apples
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons brown sugar
about a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 egg for egg wash and honey to drizzle

Preheat the oven to 400, grease a baking sheet, then place the thawed puff pastry in the middle. Egg wash the entire pastry.

Cut the apples into thin slices (i have terrible knife skills, so mine were more small-medium-somewhere in the middle). Arrange the apples in rows on top of the pastry, leaving a 1-2 inch gap on the sides.

Drizzle the melted butter over the top of the apples. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon. Fold over the sides of the pastry and then egg wash.

Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce the oven to 350, bake for another 15 minutes, until the tart is lightly browned, well risen and the apples are nice and soft.

Drizzle with honey and serve with ice cream!

  1. Looks lovely and delicious! Besides, what's wrong with creating nice things everyday? I know there are a lot less productive things to do with one's time.
    I'll have to try this sometime! :) I hope you're having a good day!
