Apple Tartlet

When I’m planning a dinner party I always like dreaming up a desert. Unfortunately I don’t always have time to whip something up. I tend to like desserts that involve lots of complicated steps, so sometimes a quick and simple dessert is great to have in the repertoire. This one has a lovely combination of tart apples and buttery puff pastry. To finish it off I spooned a little caramel over each of the tarts. This apple tartlet was the perfect end to a great Sunday dinner.

5 Granny Smith apples diced
1 tablespoon cinnamon
¼ cup sugar
5 tablespoons butter

1 package puff pastry
1 egg

Preheat oven to 375.
Sauté the apples with the cinnamon and sugar in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Once they are tender set them aside to cool. Roll out the puff pastry and cut out 6” circles. Place the puff pastry in molds and fill each with two tablespoons of the apple filling. Brush the pastry edges with egg wash and bake till golden brown, about 25 minutes.

My mouth is watering! I just got a copy of Jamie at Home from the library. It took weeks to actually get it because others have been keeping it too long! :)
The food looks pretty good!!
