Apple & Cinnamon Tarte

Now this would have to be the easiest recipe that produces an amazing result. There are only 5 ingredients it only took about 5 minutes to put together and in total it took 16 minutes to cook.

The recipe is one that I have torn out of a magazine, I believe Gourmet Traveller.

Now the apples are sliced on a mandoline. If you didn't have one perhaps a wide vegetable peeler would give you the super thin slices you need.

Apple & Cinnamon Tarte
3 apples sliced on a mandoline, leave the skin on, 1 sheet puff pastry defrosted, 30 gm raw sugar, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 20 gm butter

Heat the oven 220.c. Place tray in to heat.

Place the sheet of pastry onto a piece of baking/parchment paper big enough to cover you baking tray. Using a fork prick all over the base.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Layer the apples leaving a 1 cm border. Sprinkle over half the sugar & dot over half the butter. Remove baking tray from the oven, carefully place the sheet of paper with the tart on the tray.

Ready to go in the oven

Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until the edges of the pastry are starting to brown. You may need to turn half way to ensure even browning.

Remove from the oven sprinkle with the other half of sugar and dot with the remaining butter. Return to the oven and bake for further 10 - 15 minutes, or until the pastry edges are puffy and brown and the apple slices are cooked.

Remove from the oven slice and serve with cream or ice cream or both if you are feeling decadent.
