When it comes to fall my family always has tons of apples in our orchard. Some of them we give away to friends and the rest we keep to make apple pie, apple sauce, and any other apple cake to just use them up. This tarte is a perfect and quick way to at least use up some of the apples and brushed with caramel sauce this tastes absolutely delicious.
For the tarte´s dough I used store bought puff pastry, which I really love because it´s easy and quick to bake and tastes really light. I once made it from scratch but believe me it´s not really worth the work or time. Did you know that most of store bought puff pastry is vegan? I made this tarte with my vegan friend Magdalena and only brushed half of the tarte with caramel sauce (which contains heavy cream and butter) and kept the rest plain for her… it kinda looked funny, but both sides tasted amazing! (:
This is what you will need to make one tarte:
- 1 roll of puff pastry
- 4-5 apples, peeled and sliced very thin
- 2 tbs. of sugar
Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Roll out puff pastry and lay on a baking tray. Layer thinly sliced apples overlapping each other. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare caramel sauce:
- 50g sugar
- 2 tbs. of heavy cream
- 2 tbs. of butter
Melt sugar in a small saucepan. Be careful not to burn- sugar melts fast! Stir melted sugar/caramel using a spoon. Remove from heat, add butter and heavy cream and stir until well combined. remove tarte from oven , quickly brush apples with hot caramel sauce and return tarte to the oven for about 10 minutes.
Serve hot with a little whipping cream or plain- mmmh absolutely heaven!
