Servings: 12 tarts 1x


  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed in the fridge overnight
  • 2 large granny smith apples
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 10oz bag of square caramels
  • 2 tbsp water

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Peel apples and cut into small cubes or thin slices. Toss apples in brown sugar, cinnamon and salt and set aside to macerate.
  2. Roll puff pastry sheets into even rectangles. Cut each sheet into 6 small rectangles and place on parchment lined baking sheets. Spoon cubed apples or arrange apple slices on top of the puff pastry sheets with 1/2 inch of space around the outside.
  3. Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes or until the edges of the pastry are puffed and golden brown.

  5. Drizzle caramel sauce over puff pastries and serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
