🥟 Why Puff Pastry ?
Why not? First of all, it is easily available here, i know it is tough to source in some places. Secondly it is easy to shape them, as i type this recipe, i m getting, another 4 recipe ideas using them.
When i shared the strawberry braids made using puff pastry in FB, people thought it is rocket science. No, not at all, if i can do it, so do you.
Seriously, i suck pretty bad, making something beautiful. My friend calls me 'Thatakai', a demon from Indian Mythology. I cannot handle anything delicate, cannot do dainty cut veggies or beautiful looking shapes while cooking.😈
One of the most tedious task for me is to cut veggies thin, it was so frustrating while i was trying to make apple roses, i made 3-4 attempts, just because i couldn't cut apples thin! 😰
So, people if you want a quick dessert, that looks pretty and tastes a billion bucks then this Apple tart is for you.
📋 The Ingredients for the Apple Tart
- Puff pastry, every grocery stores have it here, i always have a pack in my freezer. We need one 6x6 pastry sheet.
- Apples, i have used Royal gala, we get a variety of apples here, recently i tried them with the soft Iranian apples too.
- Spices, i have used cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg powder along with vanilla for the tart. All these spices give a warm feeling as the tart bakes.
- Butter, better not to miss it. I have not tried a vegan replacement in this recipe.

Another delicious bake Priya -- so simple to make yet sooo fancy and elegant to look at.
That is a beautiful open tart... you are so much like me. I do all big chunks of everything I cut... 😀 While we make fruit salad, we always give the honor of cutting the fruits to my sister who cuts it so small that you don't need to even swallow... hehe... it's OK as long as you are done with it and it looks good enough to eat... 😉
This apple tart is my all time favourite, very tempting tart slices there.
