Chef's Quick Tip: Apple Tart

Posted: Updated:
NORWALK -

Chef Leah, from Chabad of Stamford, shares how to make a dessert for Rosh Hashanah that everyone can enjoy for any occasion.

Recipe:
 
1-2 crispy sweet apples, cored and thinly sliced (unpeeled)
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1/2 cup honey
1/2 lemon
Powdered sugar  

Directions"

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Unfold puff pastry sheet and cut it in half down the center (don't worry about the creases from the folding, they will disappear during baking). Place the halves on a greased cookie sheet.
Add honey to a microwave-proof bowl and heat in the microwave until warm, about 20 seconds. Brush the puff pastry with the warm honey.
Mix the apple slices with lemon juice and place them along the length of the puff pastry, overlapping over each other. Brush the apples with additional honey (warm the honey again, if necessary).
Bake for approximately 25 minutes until pastry has puffed up and is golden brown around the edges.
Drizzle with additional honey and sprinkle with powdered sugar. 

NOTE: Don't worry if some of the honey syrup leaks off the puff pastry during baking. It will actually help caramelize the puff pastry around the edges. Just remove the puff pastry to a cooling rack as soon as you take it out of the oven.
