  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 medium-sized baking apples I used Fuji
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 T. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • Vanilla Frosting


  • Thaw one sheet of puff pastry until room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Roll out into a 8" x 14" rectangle. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Score edges of puff pastry creating a 1/2 inch border all around the pastry. You don't want to cut all the way through. Just make a score.
  • Brush pastry, inside of border, with beaten egg.
  • Peel and slice apples. Toss with lemon juice.
  • Melt butter in a mixing bowl. Mix with cinnamon, a dash of salt, and brown sugar. Add to apples and toss together.
  • Arrange apples as desired over puff pastry making sure to keep them inside scored border. Pour any remaining brown sugar mixture over apples.
  • Bake at 30-35 minutes or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown.
  • Warm vanilla frosting in microwave until it reaches drizzling consistency. Drizzle over tart.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
