Simple Apple Tart

Happy Friyay! After a somewhat long break from posting recipes, I’m back! The break was much needed since I was just reusing, recycling and testing out some new recipes (some of which were flops because such is life) for the better part of the last 2 months or so.

I wanted to change things up a bit and post a pastry recipe (shocking) for today’s big comeback food Friday post! Those who know me well may know my love for cooking does not extend to baking. It’s too hard and too scientific for me. Plus I notoriously burn even simple cookies on a regular basis. My husband is actually the cookie baker in our house for just this reason. But occasionally, inspiration strikes and my sweet tooth demands satisfaction in the form of sweet baked goods. Over time I have learned the best way to satisfy this craving is to stick to super simple recipes with little room for error. And so I present to you the most simple apple tart recipe known to man. Now you too can bake something delicious and impressive without breaking out a rolling pin or setting off the fire alarm.

Simple Apple Tart:

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15-20 minutes

Yields: 2 tarts (6-8 servings)


-3 over ripe apples, sliced thin

-1 frozen puff pastry

-1 cup brown sugar

-juice of 1/2 lemon

-pinch of salt

-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

-powdered sugar for serving


Begin by defrosting the puff pastry. Once it is soft enough to open without breaking apart, open it up and cut in half. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Preheat your oven to 425 and prep apples while it is heating. Once apples are sliced thin add them to a large mixing bowl and add the lemon juice, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon and mix well. Allow apple mixture to sit for a few minutes. Once oven is heated, transfer apples to your pastry dough. Arrange in a double row down the center, leaving room around edges and fold corners of pastry up. Allow to bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges of pastry are golden. Remove and cool for 5 minutes before sprinkling with brown sugar and serving.

Happy weekending! Xo, jules
