World’s easiest apple tart

When you get home from vacation you are pretty much always guaranteed at least two things: you will have 800 emails and nothing in the fridge. But I was craving something fall-ish last night, and we did have one sheet of puff pastry in the freezer and half a bag of apples. Sounds like a tart to me!

I googled a bit until I found this recipe, which was the closest I could find to what I wanted to make. But really you don’t even need a recipe. Just do this:

Thaw out your puff pastry sheet and then unfold it on a non-stick cookie sheet. Peel, core, and thinly slice two apples. Arrange them tightly in the center of the pastry.

Then tuck in the corners. It doesn’t have to be fancy — you’re going for rustic here.

Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar all over the top.

Then bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. When the tart comes out of the oven, drizzle on some agave nectar or honey, or brush it with some jam. And that’s it!
