Instructions
  1. Open the puff pastry box and lay both pieces as they're folded on a baking sheet. Do not try to open the pieces until they've been defrosting for a few hours. If I have guests over for dinner at 6pm, I put it on the baking sheet around 2pm. I don't open the sheets until closer to 6pm. If you try to open them when they're frozen, they're likely to tear along the fold.
  2. Core and slice your apples thinly. The thinner, the better, but if you like them thicker, that's okay too! Put them in a bowl.
  3. Squeeze the lemon over the apples and add the salt. Mix well. Then add the 3/4 cup of brown sugar and mix well. Set aside until you're ready to prepare for the oven.
  4. Open the puff pastry and what I did for this recipe is to cut one of the pieces exactly in 1/2. Do the same with the other sheet. In fact, if you're only serving 3-4 people, then one sheet of this puff pastry (cut into 2 pieces) is sufficient and cut down the apples to 3-4. Put the other sheet in the box (don't defrost it) and use another time.
  5. Use a spoon and take 1-2 tablespoons and put the applesauce down the middle of the puff pastry - roughly 2" wide. Basically, you're making a base for the apple slices to sit on. I use the applesauce to make the apple filling a bit more juicy. Leave a 1" border around the apples/applesauce so that puff pastry filling has room to expand and get golden and flaky.
  6. Once you've added the applesauce, lay your apple slices, as I have in my picture. There's really no wrong way to do this. Overlap them in rows or at angles, or whatever flair you want to add.
  7. Follow the directions on your box for the pastry and pop in the oven for about 15 minutes, till the edges are puffed and golden brown. Remove to cool for a few minutes before serving.
  8. While cooling, I love to use a few tablespoons of powdered sugar, add to my sifter, and sift over the tart to give it the final french pastry look! Voila! Slice to your desired size and I typically add a small scoop of vanilla ice cream to the side and serve with coffee. To. Die. For. Enjoy!
