I had a couple of 4 small apples that were a bit too tart to eat out of hand, so what to do?
What about a tart?
This can’t be any easier to do.
Take out a sheet of frozen puff pastry and let it rest on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 420⁰. In the meantime, simply peel, core, half and slice the fruit. As you finish each apple, put the slices into a bowl of water with some lemon juice in it so that they don’t turn brown on you. Drain the water off, mix in a squirt of fresh lemon juice, ½ cup of brown sugar and your favorite apple pie spices (I used freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon and ground ginger). Give it a good stir and then line the fruit up on the pastry, leaving about an inch boarder all the way around. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the pastry is nicely browned.
Allow to cool and serve with your favorite topping, we chose vanilla ice cream, but powdered sugar would be nice as well. This didn’t come out super pretty, but man, it sure did taste good.
