I am a huge fan of Ina Garten. I just think everything she makes is so darn pretty and easy! I totally stole this recipe from her but tweaked it a little and made it a bit easier. You can take a look at her recipe at French Apple Tart. There is a nice video that might help as well.
This is my first but certainly not my last time making this. Way to impress folks with this one and really, can’t tell you how easy it was…that seems to be a theme in my blog..easy, schmeasy!
You can see the little globs of apricot jam that I was supposed to strain prior to glazing, but I’m a lazy cook…not sure I hate the little globs…maybe I’ll strain next time? Maybe not…
I’d love to hear some feedback on how this came out for you!
1 package puff pastry sheets (I used Pepperidge Farms)
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the pastry is browned and the edges of the apples start to brown. Rotate the pan once during cooking. If the pastry puffs up in one area, cut a little slit with a knife to let the air out. Don’t worry! The apple juices will burn in the pan but the tart will be fine! When the tart’s done, heat the apricot jelly in the microwave and brush on tart. Loosen the tart from the parchment/foil lining before it cools completely so avoid sticking. Serve warm…would be yumbo with vanilla ice cream!
