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


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Arrange apple slices evenly over the rectangles (within the border) and drizzle with skillet juices.
  5. 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.
  6. 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)
