How to Make an Apple Tart – Easy Homemade
Puff Pastry Apple Tart Recipe Hello and welcome back to In the Kitchen with
Matt, I am your host Matt Taylor. Today I am going to show you how to make an
apple tart, more specifically a puff pastry apple tart. I had a request to make an apple tart, and
since I already have a video on a fruit tart that uses a shortbread cookie base, um I decided
to do something different and use a puff pastry base. It is really easy to do, simple ingredients,
if I can do it, you can do it, let’s get started. First we are going to go ahead and prep our
apples. I am going to start with 2 apples and depending
on how many you want, you could go three, three apples, so we are just going to have
a washed apple, an apple I am using granny smith, and once you washed it and dried it,
we are going to go ahead and peel it and cut out the core, so if you have an apple peel
corer, go ahead and use that, lets go ahead and peel our apples. Okay and then just cut it in half, and then
in quarters, and then you want to cut out the middle part. And then with this piece you are going to
just cut about a 16th or 8th of an inch thick, see that. This part doesn’t have to be exact. So let’s go ahead and do that with all the
apples. All right, that’s ready to go. I am going to go ahead and set these apples
aside. Now I am taking a baking sheet and I just
lined it with a silicone baking mat, or you can use parchment paper. Now, take your puff pastry, and I just bought
my puff pastry at Walmart, um most supermarkets will sell it, and a lot of times they will
come with their own parchment paper as well, like this one came with parchment paper. So I am just going to un-roll it. And take it off, all right, there we go, now
what we are going to do, is we are going to take our knife and we want to score a little
bit, about a half of an inch square around this whole thing. You don’t want to cut all the way through,
and if you want to get really fancy, you can use a, like a ruler or whatever so you can
get a really straight line, I am not too concerned about that. And this will allow the pastry to puff up
around our the middle. All right we got that scored, it also gives
us a guide where to lay our apples. So now we just start with an apple, an apple
chunk like this, and we are just going to start laying them down, and I like to do it,
a little, so they over lap almost half way, all right so just complete the other line,
so this is going to be three lines of apples. And now what we do is we are going to take
our granulated sugar, and we are going to go ahead and dust the top of these with our
sugar. And you can add like a teaspoon of cinnamon
to this too if you like, and I will put the amounts for these down below in the description,
but we are really not measuring anything, so it really doesn’t matter about the amounts
too much, and if you want this to be more healthy you can leave the sugar off. Now we are going to take some butter and I
am just going to go ahead and cut this up in cubes and dot the top of this with butter
cubes, so little pieces of butter like this, and then do the rest. And now what you can do is if you want a really
nice golden finish to your puff pastry you can take some egg wash and go ahead and go
around the edges. Now we go ahead and put this in the oven and
bake it at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes let’s go ahead and take our
tart out of the oven, and now what I am going to do is I am going to take my honey and I
am going to heat it up in the microwave, for about 15 seconds, just so it is going to be
nice and liquidy for me. Take my honey, a couple of tablespoons and
I am just going to drizzle it on top, or baste it on top, this step is optional, you don’t
have to use honey if you don’t want to. You could use like a jelly that you melt or
a marmalade, or something like that. All right and then let us put it back in the
oven and let it bake for another 5 to 10 minutes. And when your puff pastry apple tart comes
out of the oven it will look something like this. Go ahead and let it cool for about 10 minutes
before we cut into it. All right now what I am going to do is I am
going to go ahead and transfer this over to my cutting board. And I am just going to pick up the silicone
baking mat like this, and then, go underneath it with my spatulas here, put it down like
that, so awesome. And then what I am going to do, this is totally
optional; is I am going to come in here with powdered sugar and just sprinkle the tops
with powdered sugar. There you go and awesome apple tart. And then when you want to serve it you just
come in here with your pizza roller, like that, and then it is up to you how big you
want to do them, I usually just use my apples as a guide, and there you go a nice little
apple tart slice. All right our puff pastry apple tart is done,
it turned out amazing, really easy to do, simple ingredients, if I can do it you can
do it. I am Matt Taylor this has been another episode

  1. Hope u had a good Christmas, Apple tart yum , I will try to make it. It's brutally freezing here in NY. I'll wait until it gets warmer to go out & buy apples! Thank Matt – kitchen genius!!!

  2. I still have guests here until Jan 2, and when the notification came thro of the new video, I just had to get them all together to watch the video; so you may be getting more subscribers in the new year. lol

    That's a very novel way of making apple tart. Innovative, fast, and a very easy method. It did look awesome too. But, I do have a er… confession to make. 'twinkles naughtily' You see, I gained a few readies on your video…

    I bet my guests that at the end of it, you would be adding confectionery sugar. 😀 Gonna spend my winnings on some new art materials; so thanks both for the delicious looking recipe, and for adding to my art accessories. 'grins mischievously'

  3. Made this and it was great. We here at my house are not real big on sweet stuff but just had to try this and it was delicious. Thank you for sharing with us. Happy New Year to you and thanks again.

  4. Like always , ur the best Mat! Love how down to earth and sweet u come across. I love Granny Smith for my pies etc, they're so nice and tart. You make really good food, and I sure hope ur channel lasts for a long time to come. Thank you Matt! ❤
