I Made Apple Tarts!

These delicious tarts are the result of a google search on "easy apple tart with puff pastry."  The recipe came from this blog:

It was quick and easy, and I had plenty of apple filling left over, enough to make a pie. 

Here are some pictures:

That is one sheet of puff pastry, cut in half.  The apples were mixed with lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.   I wanted to make a fancy tart and a rustic tart, while I was baking tarts.  I laid out the apple slices, then spooned some of the syrup that had formed in the bowl over them.

The rustic tart didn't puff up evenly at first so lots of the syrup ran off:

Yay for silicone baking sheets!

The fancy tart was slightly easier to transfer to the serving platter.  I recorded these on NutriMirror by creating a recipe, and I said that each tart made six servings.  That is six one-inch-wide servings.  I ate four servings yesterday.  Next time I make these, I'm changing the serving size to show that each tart makes 2 servings.  Ha.  Delicious!
