Glazed Puff Pastry Apple Tarts

Glazed Puff Pastry Apple Tarts

 


Ingredients

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 Golden Delicious apples (about 1 pound)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons apricot jam, warmed
Vanilla ice cream, for serving


Preparation

1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll pastry on lightly floured work surface to a 13" square. Using a 6" plate or tart pan insert as guide, cut out four 6" rounds. Place 2 rounds on each prepared baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

2. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 425ºF. Wash and peel apples. Cut in half and core using melon baller or spoon. Slice each apple-half crosswise into very thin slices, keeping the apple half in tact. Place an apple half on each pastry round, pressing lightly down to fan slices a bit. Sprinkle each apple with 2 teaspoons sugar. Drizzle with melted butter.

3. Bake tarts in preheated oven until pastry is golden and apples are tender, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly then brush with melted apricot jam. Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
