Recipe: French Apple Tart
If you have apple trees, you’ll have loads of apples at this time of years. So why not try this French apple tart? It’s really quick to make and fantastic to eat with cream or ice-cream.
1 roll of puff pastry
3 dessertspoons of caster sugar
20 g unsalted butter
A little powdered cinnamon
5/6 dessert apples depending on their size
Juice of a lemon
Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees celsius
Butter a shallow rectangular baking tin, then line with the puff pastry. Alternatively line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper and then prick the base with a fork.
Peel and core the apples then roll them in the lemon juice so they don’t discolour.
Finely slice them into half-moons and layer them on the pastry leaving a 1cm border of pastry.
Evenly sprinkle the sugar over them, sprinkle also a little powdered cinnamon, splash the lemon juice over them and then dot with the butter.
Bake for 20 minutes in the oven or until golden.
Serve hot or warm with some cream or ice-cream.
