SALTED CARAMEL APPLE TARTE METHOD
By Catrine Kelty for Coop's
1 puff pastry sheet (1/2 pound)
2 medium size apples, peel, cored and sliced very thin
4 tablespoon caramel sauce divided
1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Unroll the puff pastry on the baking sheet
In a small bowl mix the butter, sugar and cinnamon and set aside
With a sharp paring knife score ¼ inch line all around the puff pastry making sure you don’t cut through the dough. You are basically making a frame inside the dough.
Spread 2 tablespoons of the caramel on the dough up to the score lines.
Arrange the apple slices in rows overlapping them a bit on top of the caramel.
Lightly brush the apples with the butter mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes turning the tart halfway through baking.
Once baked, drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoon of caramel.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, warm or at room temperature.
