rustic apple tart
Puff pastry is my favorite ingredient for baking. It’s delicious, flaky, and can be frozen in your local grocery store. For today’s rustic apple tart, I am using puff pastry for the crust. It’s easy to make this dessert. Just score a border on your puff pastry and add your apples. Finally, brush everything with an egg wash before baking. This delicious, seasonal dessert is ready for serving after 35 minutes. We recommend adding vanilla ice cream to the mix. ).

How to make rustic apple tart

COOK’S NOTE – Frozen puff pastry can sometimes crack when unrolled. This can be prevented by leaving the pastry folded before rolling it.
