Apple & Honey Tart

Written by chanie on September 9th, 2012

You’ll never believe how easy this beautiful tart is to make. It only requires 4 ingredients, and the dough isn’t even homemade!  The secret to this scrumptious dessert is puff pastry. I’m a huge fan of puff pastry because as most of you already know, I don’t like to bake, and it comes already prepared in the freezer section of every supermarket. I’ve been known to sneak puff pastry into just about any recipe that calls for a dough, even rugelach and hamantaschen!

Truth be told, I can’t take all the credit for this simple, elegant and delicious dessert. Last year, my wonderful sister-in-laws decided to treat me out to a fun evening at the Kosher Culinary Institute for my birthday. It was a special “date night” class, so my husband joined me in preparing a gourmet meal together with a few other couples. We really enjoyed the evening and I’m sorry to say that I don’t remember exactly what was on the menu. What I do remember is making spaetzle from scratch, whipping up cherry clafoutis for dessert, and what was a mere afterthought of the chef – a version of this apple tart.

    Do you think the lemon juice can be omitted? (I assume it is to prevent the apples from browning?) I want to make this for dessert on Rosh Hashana but we don’t use lemon juice.

    This looks beautiful

    Do you ‘dock” the pastry prior to putting on the apples?

  11. Sarah Blumenfeld says:

    Does this freeze well if I want to make it in advance? What do you mean by docking the pastry dough?
