Puff Pastry Apple Tart

1 (17 1/4 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets (2 sheets), thawed
1/4  Cup plus 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/4  Cup cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
5-6 firm ripe apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
3  Tbsp. butter, unsalted (at room temperature)

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Roll out one puff pastry sheet to 12-inch square on lightly floured surface. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with pastry, leaving 1-inch overhang on all sides.

Combine remaining ingredients except apples in a large bowl. Add apples and toss well. Spoon apple mixture into prepared pastry. Dot top of apple mixture with butter.

Roll out second pastry sheet to 11-inch square. Brush overhang of bottom pastry with water. Top pie with second sheet. Press pasty edges together to seal.

Trim edges to 1/2 inch. Using small sharp knife, cut slits in top of pie for steam to escape.

Bake until pastry is golden brown and apples are tender, about 1 hour.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Any fresh fruit would work with this delicious puff pastry tart, try pears, peaches, apricots, or any combination of fruits.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
