Easy apple tart with puff pastry is one of the most popular dessert recipes in the world. The tart is one of the oldest and most popular desserts in the world. It was developed by a French chef, Bouillon, around 1700. The tart was first created to quench the thirst of the royal court in England during tea parties. This delicious pastry was also created to satisfy the hunger of the poor who were sent to the poorhouses because they did not eat the rich foods provided by the English court.
The tart is so easy to make that it is often served without any topping at all. You can make a simple tart by using apples of the highest quality, fresh from the garden or store. If you are making it from scratch, use apples that have been cut into wedges. You can also use apples that have been cut into medium-sized cubes. When you put all these ingredients together, it is very easy to make a tart that will have your guests raving.
An apple tart maker is an essential part of the recipe for easy applesauce that you can find in any cookbook. You can buy an easy apple pie tin from any cookbook that specializes in pastry and foods. You can bake the tart in a regular tart pan, an aluminum one, or even in a round pastry ring that can be bought at your local drugstore.
Making the easy apple tart from scratch does require some work and preparation. You will need to have at least 3 apples cut into wedges. Do not use melons as they tend to bruise easily. Put the peels on a wire mesh strainer that can be placed over a bowl and used to catch the juices that result.
Fill a mixing bowl with about two inches of water and set it aside. Get an electric tart maker and bring it to boil. Put your wet pastry ingredients into the bowl and turn them out on to the heat. Once hot, place your wet pastry ingredients into the pastry shell and cover with the bottom of the pan. Lightly cover the pastry with a piece of patted butter and pop it into the oven. Check to ensure that the pastry is fully cooked and ready to serve.
If you wish to save time, you can always make your tart the night before. Remove your apple tart maker from the oven and wash your hands thoroughly. Place all of your wet ingredients into your mixer and mix until completely mixed. Once fully blended, form your mixture into small tart shells and pop into the oven.
After your tart has finished cooking, allow it to cool in the oven. Unwrap and cut into desired sizes. If you wish to make a more elaborate design, by using a food color wheel or contrasting icing, you can tint your tart for a unique look. Once cooled, your easy apple tart will be ready to serve.
You can serve your delicious apple tart as is or fill it with other delicious dessert fillings. My favorite fillings are nuts or raisins. Whichever you choose, you will surely enjoy this simple recipe. An apple tart truly symbolizes the sweet, delicious taste of the apple. The tart’s unique design and easy preparation only add to its appeal.
Another way to make an apple tart that will be a real surprise is to use pastry cream or glaze. For the cream to work properly, it should be mixed with a bit of water. Begin by pouring the filling into your pastry cream base and gently mix until completely blended. The cream will not be necessary if you do not want your fruit tart to be moist. If you would like your fruit tart to be somewhat dry, add a little water or milk.
When preparing your tart, it is important to cover it tightly with cooking parchment or aluminum foil. This allows the filling to seal properly and bake more evenly. Do not wrap the pan or tart case with foil; it will prevent the light from entering the fruit. Allow your tart to cool completely on a wire rack before removing it from the oven. Your easy apple tart will taste absolutely delicious when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of low-fat whipped cream.
You can customize your tart by using blueberries instead of apples in your recipe. Or you can even substitute cranberries for cherries. The recipes provided in this cookbook are very easy to follow and produce a delicious result. I highly recommend this cookbook to any chef who needs an easy dessert recipe.
