Easy Apple Tarts

When there have been so many apple around my go-to dessert is usually, apple crumble. It's simple and tasty and always requires custard...even writing this makes me want to make one! But this year I thought why not do something a little more suitable for having with a cup of tea mid-afternoon. Not that I would bat an eyelid at having crumble and custard at any time of day.

These little tarts make a great treat and they are so easy to change up to how ever you fancy. Blackcurrants are a great addition, or warm with a big scoop of ice-cream as a yummy dessert...not that I would ever encourage such things...

It would also be good as one large tart instead of six small.

{Makes six individual tarts/or one large tart}
You will need:

1 sheet of roll  out puff pastry
3 apples
1 tsp of soft brown sugar
1 tsp of powdered cinnamon
30g of butter cut into little cubes
4 tbsp of apricot jam

*Pre-heat your oven to 180c and line your baking trays with greaseproof paper. I had to use 3 trays because they are quite small but you might get away with one or two.

*Roll out your puff party sheet and cut into six smaller rectangles, you could measure them if you like but I just did it by eye. Score around the tarts making a border of about 1cm, being careful not to cut all the way through. Then prick all over the middle area with a fork.

*Peel and core your apples, then slice them in half from the stock all the way down to the bottom. Turn them on onto the flat side and slice into thin little c (ish) shapes. Half an apple does one tart.

*Start to lay your apples on to the middle of your party sheet, but try to keep them off the border as much as possible. The design is up to you, I over lapped them all the way down. 

*Mix your cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle generously over each tart. Top each one with 3 or 4 little butter cubes and then put them in the oven for 25 minutes.

*When they are done, warm up your apricot jam on a low heat or pop in the microwave for a few seconds at a time. Brush your running jam over each tart to give them a lovely glaze.

And there you go! You have tasty little apple tarts to enjoy how you like, I think next time I make these little guys I might add some pecan nuts...everything is made better with pecan nuts in my opinion. 

I would love to know if you give these a try, or how you would make them.
