The easiest Apple Tart you will want to make

The easiest Apple Tart you will want to make! This is so true! When was the last time you craved a delicious apple tart or an apple pie and realized that you did not have all the ingredients? I bet it was just a few days ago.

If you were to visit me right this moment, you would find either storebought puff pastry or store-bought pie dough. I am not ashamed to say that I dislike making my dough. Although many people find it to be a great workout, I do not.

It would be okay to make the dough in my mixer or food processor, roll it, and be done. But, a perfect mixture needs time to rest, strong arms for rolling, and lots of tender loving care. I can only produce half and still not ashamed. 🙂

Apple Tart requires Puff pastry

Having store-bought puff pastry dough on hand is the quickest way you will make your apple tart. I usually use puff pastry for my apple tart because of its texture. Puff pastry is like a pie crust that rises high with no leavening. Puff pastry is used in sweet and savory pies, tarts, desserts, and canapés.

My apple tart is so easy that on your next trip to the supermarket you’ll make sure to add a box of puff pastry to your shopping cart.

The first step of this easy tart is to have store-bought puff pastry. Whatever brand you want will be fine. I prefer Pepperidge Farms just so you know. The taste is exceptionally good and easy to handle. You don’t have to buy, this is my preferred brand for puff pastry.

Tips and Notes

One important tip you must remember is to remove the puff pastry from the refrigerator or freezer when you are ready to use it. If not the dough will be too soft and you won’t be able to use it.

I use spiced applesauce, spiced cooked apple chunks, and a dash of brandy. It was not a dash but enough brandy to make the apple tart supper delicious. So here is the easiest Apple Tart you will ever want to make.

Ingredients
  

  • Rectangular tart pan
  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
  • 3 – 4 large apples sliced in cubes or chunks (I used granny smith but gala would work as well)
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoon orange liqueur

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place puffed pastry rectangles or sheet onto a baking pan that’s been sprayed with nonstick spray. Shape pastry to fit pan.
  • In a saucepan, add butter, apples, sugar, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat for about 4 – 5 minutes until the apples have released some of their juice and form a small amount of applesauce. Add orange liqueur, stir and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  • Spread mixture onto tart. Sprinkle the dough with brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until puff pastry is puffed and golden brown.
  • Remove from pan immediately and place on a serving platter. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
