Apple Tarts

12:55 PM

I'm not usually a baking person.... or a cooking person. But lately, I've been trying to branch out and try some new recipes. I recently came across this easy recipe for apple tarts, so today, I decided to try it out.

In order to make these for yourself, you'll need:

Puff pastry
3 Granny Smith apples
2 tbsp lemon juice
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp melted butter
Powdered sugar for dusting

Begin by preheating the oven to 400F and put a baking tray in the oven to heat up. Roll out the pastry if necessary and trim it into squares. I trimmed my pastry dough into 8 equal squares.  Place the pastry squares on a piece of baking paper and refrigerate while preparing the apples.

Peel, halve and core the apples, then slice them finely. Toss the apples in the lemon juice, zest and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Mark a 1⁄2-inch border around the edges of the pastry with the tip of a sharp knife and prick inside the borders lightly with the tines of a fork. Arrange the apples in overlapping half moons in the pattern of your choice – they don’t have to be too perfect. Brush the apples and pastry edges with butter, then sprinkle the remaining sugar over the apples.

Slide the pastry squares on the baking paper onto the hot oven tray and bake for 20-25 minutes. Rest for a few minutes before serving with a light dusting of powdered sugar.

Enjoy! Xx
