How to Make Caramel Apple Puff Pastry Tarts

Apples – You’ll need 3 medium-large apples, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick (approximately 3 cups of sliced apple). I like a sweet-tart apple variety like Honeycrisp here, or a mix of Fuji and Granny Smith apples for a nice balance.

Caramelize Apples – Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples, maple syrup, sugar, spices, and salt. Cook until the apples are golden and beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.

Assemble Tarts – Roll out 1 sheet of puff pastry into a 10 x 12-inch rectangle. Use a sharp knife to cut the puff pastry into 9 rectangles, and score the rectangles with a shallow 1/4-inch border around the edges.

Place the rectangles on parchment-lined baking sheets and chill for 5 minutes. Arrange apple slices evenly over the rectangles (within the border) and drizzle with skillet juices.

Bake – Bake tarts for 15 minutes, then rotate baking sheets. Continue baking another 8 to 10 minutes, or until tarts are puffed and golden. Remove from the oven and let tarts cool on baking sheets for 15 minutes.

Serve – Enjoy these easy apple tarts drizzled with homemade salted caramel sauce and topped with scoops of vanilla ice cream!
