Easy Apple Tart

The kids are craving for apple pie and the store bought ain't satisfying them. Apple pie seems a little too much for me tonight so I thought of baking an apple tart instead. It's easy peasy and ready in less than an hour.

When I went to the grocers to get the ingredients for tonight's dinner, I also bought some frozen puff pastry squares. I let it thaw in the kitchen counter before laying them in a baking sheet and then brushing with some egg wash and scoring the sides. Scoring all four side half an inch from the edge of the pastry will make the side puff up. Here is Mica applying the egg wash on all five squares.

Here is our homemade apple tart. It smells divine and taste great.

This recipe has 6 ingredients and the frozen puff pastry is your cheat here.

5 puff pastry squares thawed but kept chilled
2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup of sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp peach marmalade
2 tbsp butter

Preheat oven 350 degrees
1. Lay the thawed puff pastry on the baking tray lined with baking paper and keep chilled in the fridge.
2. Peel the apples, core and slice, transfer to a bowl and add sugar, mix to coat all apple pieces, set aside
2. For the eggwash, separate the white from the yolk, beat the yolk and discard the white or keep for later use, add 1 tbsp water to the yolk and mix
3. Take the pastry from the fridge and brush with some eggwash, score the pastry on all four sides.
4. Take the apples and spoon to the pastry, arrange the apples in the middle
5. Add small squares of butter on top - 2 on each squares
6. Pop into the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes
7. Once it's cooked, transfer to a wire rack
8. Glaze with warm peach marmalade on top (in a small bowl, add 2 tbsp of peach marmalade and 2 tbsp of water and heat for few seconds in the microwave)

Serve it warm or cold, i's best for breakfast, snack or dessert.
