Simple Apple Tart

This rustic, classic dessert* is a breeze to prepare.

For one tart, you'll need:

+ 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed
+ 2 Granny Smith apples
+ 1 lemon
+ sugar, 3 tablespoons
+ butter, 1 tablespoon
+ apricot jam, heated and strained (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Peel, core and thinly slice apples. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over them to prevent browning. Sprinkle one tablespoon of sugar over the puff pastry. Arrange apple slices (in neat rows, or not, it's up to you) evenly on the pastry. Sprinkle remaining sugar on top of the apples. Bake on a baking sheet for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. If you want to add a French flair to your tart, brush the jam over the apples. Enjoy!


* J and I like this for breakfast, too. Add some bacon, and it's a great early-morning treat!
