4-Ingredient Easy Puff Pastry Apple Tart

Easy Puff Pastry Apple Tart

With only 4 ingredients, these quick, easy, and super delicious puff pastry apple tarts will be ready in a matter of minutes.


  • Frozen and thawed puff pastry (one store-bought package is enough)
  • 2-3 apples of your choice (I like Granny Smith)
  • 3 tablespoons (40 g) granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons (40 g) unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 400F/205C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Cut puff pastry into two long strips, each approximately 9x30 cm (3.5x12 inch).
  3. Peel apples, cut them in half through the core, and remove the core using a melon baller or a knife. Place the halved apples cut side down, and slice into very thin pieces.
  4. Arrange apples on the pastry, overlapping each other slightly, leaving a bit of a border around the sides. For each tart, sprinkle half of the sugar and gently brush with half of the melted butter.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with ice cream if you like.
