Apple Puff Pastry TartPin

After spending precious time making your kids’ dinner or lunch, many of us resort to opening a box of cookies or other such snacks to satisfy our little ones’ sweet cravings. I get it. But most pre-packaged desserts contain stuff we likely don’t want your kids eating on a regular basis, so at weelicious I put a premium on coming up with ideas for super simple desserts for Kenya and his friends that aren’t packed with sugar and are hopefully just as easy for you to make as opening a tin of Sara Lee cake is. I think these apple puff pastry tarts fit the bill. They are delicious and so perfect to make at this time of year.

Many different varieties of apples are all over our farmer’s market this fall and Kenya has been eating them up left and right. I think he eats a tree’s worth of free samples every weekend. The best part about making this recipe is that you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already, so you can have this treat on the table in no time flat! These will be a huge hit with everyone and think of all the money you’ll save not buying Oreos.

    1. Hi girls, I just wanted to let you guys know how happy you have made my dughater with the pastry hi-tops. My dughater has cerebal palsy and wears leg braces and must wear only hi-top sneakers to support her braces. Prior to your sneaker collection she only wore hi-top Reeboks (not as colorful). While watching your show, she heard that you guys were putting out a sneaker line. Well low and behold we were in the mall and she seen them. Well she got so excited! I worried that they would not comfortablely fit over her brace but they did. She loves them and wears them daily! I brought her 3 pairs and continue to try and buy more, but some are not available. Please make more!! I love to see my dughater happy! Watching your show and wearing the sneakers really makes her day!! Please please I beg you, keep up the good work!!You have definately made my little angel happy! She tells all the kids at her school to purchase them because they feel great on her feet! God Bless

    2. This design is wicked! You certainly know how you can maintain a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own weblog (well, practically…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and far more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    3. Okay – I’m going to ask a super elementary question – it says to cut in 12 squares but the recipe is for 6 tarts. do you cover the puff pastry w/the apple sauce w/another square and put the apples on that so the sauce is inside each tart – but then how do you seal it? or do you place the apples on top of the apple sauce – and make 12? sorry – i’ve never worked w/puff pastry before i’m extra clueless this time~!

    4. MY wife found of she was pregent with twins she is 1 momrhs along has she and my 3 other boy craved them , but can you use pears?

    5. I love these apple pastries too. I use a Dorie Greenspan recipe; I think it’s called Parisian apple tartlets. It’s similar to yr recipe – apples on puff pastry, dotted with butter and sprinkled with brown sugar. Easy and yummy

    6. These are great in the summer with peaches, nectarines, or plums, too. I just brush the puff pastry with melted butter, line the fruit slices across a 1/4 sheet diagonally, dust with a little bit of powdered sugar (or drizzle with agave nectar), and pinch 2 of the corners points together in the middle. They’re so sweet, you can skip a lot of sweetener. Great for little hands!
