Easy Apple Tart - Recipes

Instead of refined sugar, this recipe uses apple sauce, spices, and lemon juice to give this apple tart a simple, sweet flavor. If you’re feeling fancy, you can layer the apple slices in a beautiful pattern like a french tart.

Or if you’re pressed for time, you can just toss the apple mixture into the pastry shell and call it dessert. I’ve made this apple tart recipe both ways and they are equally satisfying.

If you’re looking for more sweetness, try adding sliced pears or raisins.

Quick & Easy (and Yummy) Apple Tart

Place puffed pastry rectangles onto a baking pan that&rsquos been sprayed with nonstick spray. Add sugar and salt to apples. Stir to combine. Allow to sit for a few minutes.

Arrange apple slices on the pastry rectangles in a straight line, overlapping as you go. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown.

Remove from pan immediately and place on a serving platter. Serve plain, with caramel topping, whipped cream, and/or a sprinkling of powdered sugar.

If you want to make a very quick, very easy dessert that also happens to yield impressive results, look no farther than the freezer section of your grocery store, where you can find frozen sheets of ready-made puffed pastry. Puffed pastry is a magical substance&mdashit looks like nothing in the package, but bakes into a puffy, golden, textural substance that make the perfect crust for fruit tarts, chocolate pastries, hors d&rsquooeuvres&hellipthe list goes on.

The other night before we left for New York City, I whipped up an apple tart. My mom happened to be visiting that night and hadn&rsquot seen me make it, and when she took a bite, her eyes rolled into the back of her head.

To make the apple tart (or tarts), you need frozen puffed pastry. It&rsquos sold next to the pies and pastries in the freezer section of your supermarket, and usually comes two sheets to a package. The sheets are tri-folded, so they look like rectangles.

Allow the rectangles to thaw on the counter for about twenty minutes, then carefully unfold them. This is one sheet of puffed pastry.

Then, to make the tarts, we can take two different approaches here. One, you can cut the sheet into three thinner rectangles, which means you&rsquod just cut along the existing scores. This will result in three smaller tarts, with less &ldquopuff&rdquo around the sides.

Apple Tart

True story: I lost a lot of sleep over this recipe. I tossed and turned trying to figure out how to make a gorgeous but easy apple tart. After rounds and round of testing, and with the help of many people on our team, I finally did it. Here's what makes *THIS* recipe super special:


And you don't need to chill it either! This dough is basically like a digestive biscuit crust. In other words, it's a simple stir-and-press mixture that uses a lot of melted butter. Only instead of digestive biscuits, you use plain flour. The results are way more delicate and not as sweet as a shortbread shell. And everyone on our team was freaking out.


In a classic French recipe, you're supposed to cook down an apple compote to go on top of the crust and under the spiral of apples. Not here. We skipped the sauce completely and macerated the slices in brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and vanilla to make sure they got nice and jammy in the oven. You also don't need to blind bake the crust! 🙌


I swear! All you need to do is stack a dozen or so slices together tightly, then place them over the crust cut side-down, shingled slightly. If the thought still makes your brain hurt, you don't need to do anything fancy. You can just scatter them on top.

Easy Apple Tart

My 5 year old writes a special note for her teacher every day. Usually she writes something like “I love school,” “school is great” or “I love my teacher” followed by a drawing of my daughter and her teacher holding hands. It all just oozes cuteness in my opinion, but I’m not sure what her teacher thinks of the barage of daily papers. I assume she finds these notes equally endearing but I could be wrong. One day I suggested to my daughter that perhaps she should take a break from her drawings. Maybe someone else would like a chance to bring in their own drawings. My daughter accepted this and then said “ok, I’ll bring her apples instead.”

That wasn’t exactly what I was going for. I’m not opposed to my daughter bringing an apple in to her teacher, but an apple a day might get a little excessive. Her teacher may not even LIKE apples. Just because we eat apples like they are going out of style doesn’t mean everyone else does. Seriously, we go through bags of apples a week. I put them in brownies, cook them in syrup, and pack them in our lunch boxes. They are perfectly, self-contained treats.

This is why we love apple season. All the crisp, sweet apples are overflowing at the grocery stores, farm markets and u-pick orchards. While I gravitate towards apple butter or even homemade pie, I was ready to try something different this season. I thought an easy apple tart would be just the dessert to try! I was right, this tart might even have the classic apple pie beat. It’s a simple recipe but with all the flavors and textures, it tastes like you’ve toiled in the kitchen all day!

The crust for this tart is a sugar cookie mix. No one has to know, it can be our little secret. Once you mix the crust ingredients, you’ll bake it up just until it is golden. While the crust is getting all toasty, that’s when you whip up your filling. Ah, the filling!! It’s beautiful! It’s creamy and smooth with a bit of cinnamon spice. It’s not too sweet either (let’s save that for the fresh apples). Sprinkle the tart with a little powdered sugar and you have yourself an impressive dessert my friends.

  • Oatmeal cookie mix would do just as well. Use what you have on hand. This is a flexible recipe.
  • You could use natural peanut butter if that is what is in your pantry. I would increase the sugar. Your taste buds will tell you how much to add.
  • You could take the skin off the apples if that is your preference. I sort of like the rustic look so I left my skins on.
  • Get the kids to help! Kids are master crust mixers! Little hands can expertly press the crust into the tart pan. Kids love arranging the apples too-give them a chance to show off their artistic sides!
