Servings 8 servings


  • 1 sheet (half of a 17.3-ounce package) puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 small Granny Smith apples
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup homemade or store-bought caramel sauce
  • Sea salt, for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  • Slice the apples into thin (about 1/4-inch) pieces. Place them in a large bowl then add the lemon juice, vanilla extract and brown sugar to the bowl, tossing to thoroughly combine. Set aside.
  • Unfold the sheet of puff pastry onto the lined baking sheet. Lightly score the dough by cutting a border 1 inch from the edges (do not cut through the pastry). Prick the pastry all over with a fork. Shake off any excess liquid from each apple slice then arrange them on the puff pastry inside the border area.
  • Whisk together the egg with 1 Tablespoon water. Brush the edges of the pastry with the eggwash then bake the tart for 15 to 17 minutes until golden and puffed.
  • Remove the tart from the oven oven, drizzle it with caramel sauce and sprinkle it with sea salt. Slice and serve immediately.
