Full Answer

To make an easy apple tart, purchase already-made puffed pastry sheets. Place one sheet in the bottom of a greased baking pan. In a bowl, combine 3 cored and sliced apples, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and juice from 1/2 of a lemon. After allowing the mixture to cure for a few minutes, arrange the apples on top of the puffed pastry sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve with caramel sauce and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans.

Another easy tart recipe calls for 1 sheet of puffed pastry and 3 peeled, cored and sliced Golden Delicious apples. Place the pastry in the bottom of a pan and top with the apples, ensuring the slices overlap. Melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter and brush it over the apples, followed by 3 tablespoons of cinnamon sugar. Bake the tart at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, melt 1/4 cup of apricot jam in the microwave. Brush the jam over the baked tart, and return it to the oven for eight more minutes before serving.
