Caramel apple puff pastry tarts make the best fall dessert! You’ll love these easy apple tarts topped with salted caramel sauce.
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 medium-large apples, peeled and sliced 1/4″ thick
- 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp cloves
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
- 6 Tbsp salted caramel sauce
- Preheat oven to 400°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples, maple syrup, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Cook until the apples are golden and beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
- Roll out puff pastry sheet 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 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.
- Drizzle tarts with salted caramel sauce and top with scoops of vanilla ice cream before serving.
Apples: This recipe uses 3 medium-large apples, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick (approximately 3 cups of sliced apple)
