Quick Apple Tart
375g/13oz pack ready-rolled puff pastry
500g/1lb 2oz sweet dessert apples, cored, thinly sliced and tossed in the juice of 1
icing (confectioner’s) sugar to dredge
cream to serve
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
2 Roll out the pastry on a 28 × 38cm/11 × 15in baking sheet. Score lightly around the edge, to create a 3cm/1¼in border.
3 Arrange the apple slices on top of the pastry, within the border. Turn the edge of the pastry halfway over, so that it reaches the edge of the apples, then press down and crimp the edge with your fingers. Dredge with icing sugar.
4 Bake in the oven for 20–25 minutes until the pastry is cooked and the sugar has caramelized. Serve warm with cream.
