Vegan apple tart

Pastry on EVERYTHING.

When you discover vegan pastry (hi Jus Rol puff pastry!) you have to make everything you’ve ever made with pastry one more time, y’know, just to test whether or not it’s any good.

So far, so yum.

Apples and pastry go together brilliantly, and this recipe is so easy you have no excuse not to try it.  If you know of any vegan whipped cream recipes to go with it, holla at me!

Ingredients

1/2 sheet of Jus Rol puff pastry

1 x apple (red, green, whatever you prefer)

1/4 cup brown sugar (I use Biona organic unrefined coconut sugar)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup apricot jam

Method

Preheat your oven to 190C/375F

Take your pastry out of the fridge, unfold to flat on a baking sheet and let it warm to room temperature (if you are defrosting from frozen allow to defrost before trying to unfold!).

While your pastry is warming, core and thinly slice your apple.  When sliced, add to a small bowl with the sugar and cinnamon.  Stir to coat.

When you pastry has warmed to room temperature, prick every inch or so with a fork.

Transfer the apple slices to the pastry, leaving an inch or so between the apple and the side of the pastry (see below).

Spray the exposed pastry with a mist of water, or use a pastry brush to brush a small amount of water over the pastry.  You don’t need egg wash to make pastry brown sexily!

Transfer pastry and apples with the baking sheet to a baking tray and place in the oven for 12 – 15 minutes, or until starting to brown.

Place the jam in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 20 seconds, or until soft.

Brush the jam evenly over the apples, and return to the oven for 3 – 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before scoffing!

 

Makes dessert/a treat for 4 people

Time to make: 15 mins total prep / 20 minutes total in oven = 35 minutes

On a scale of easy (1) to pull your hair out difficult (5) = 2, recipe is done in two steps, but generally idiot-proof.
