Over the long weekend I headed to San Francisco to shop the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. I was on the hunt for apples and found some gorgeous heirloom varieties from a Sonoma county orchard that were just meant for a tart. This tart, in fact.
The apples shine here, topped with a sprinkle of sugar and dots of butter; a quick maple syrup glaze gives the fruit a glistening finish (Confession: I don’t recall the exact apple I used, but pick a firm variety with a good sweet-tart balance; with so few ingredients, you want the best apples you can find). I made my own quick puff pastry in the food processor but feel free to pick up a package at the store to save time. This quick and delicious tart is an easy yet impressive dessert for a weeknight or even a dinner party.
