Apple & Honey Tart

Apple & Honey Tart

You’ll never believe how easy this beautiful tart is to make. It only requires 4 ingredients, and the dough isn’t even homemade!  The secret to this scrumptious dessert is puff pastry. I’m a huge fan of puff pastry because as most of you already know, I don’t like to bake, and it comes already prepared in the freezer section of every supermarket. I’ve been known to sneak puff pastry into just about any recipe that calls for a dough, even rugelach and hamantaschen!

Truth be told, I can’t take all the credit for this simple, elegant and delicious dessert. Last year, my wonderful sister-in-laws decided to treat me out to a fun evening at the Kosher Culinary Institute for my birthday. It was a special “date night” class, so my husband joined me in preparing a gourmet meal together with a few other couples. We really enjoyed the evening and I’m sorry to say that I don’t remember exactly what was on the menu. What I do remember is making spaetzle from scratch, whipping up cherry clafoutis for dessert, and what was a mere afterthought of the chef – a version of this apple tart.

  1. This looks so good!! I also love puff pastry – it’s amazing the versatility of it and how many recipes you can create using it! Can’t wait to try this one out!

  2. Do you think the lemon juice can be omitted? (I assume it is to prevent the apples from browning?) I want to make this for dessert on Rosh Hashana but we don’t use lemon juice.

  3. Does this freeze well if I want to make it in advance? What do you mean by docking the pastry dough?

    1. I’m not a fan of freezing baked puff pastry. The apples will also get soggy. It’s best to bake this right before (or the day of) serving.
