1 sheet (1/2 pound) frozen puff pastry, thawed

1 Granny Smith apple

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, cut into bits

2 tablespoons apricot jam, heated and strained

Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream as an accompaniment


  1. Roll out the pastry 1/8-inch thick on a lightly floured surface, cut out two 7-inch rounds, and transfer them to a baking sheet. Peel, halve lengthwise, and core the apple, slice it thin crosswise, and arrange the slices, overlapping them slightly, on the pastry rounds. In a small bowl stir together the sugar and the cinnamon, sprinkle the mixture evenly over the apples, and dot the tarts with the butter. Bake the tarts in the middle of a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown. Transfer the tarts to a rack, brush them with the jam and serve them warm with ice cream.
