Happy Halloween Apple Tart (by Kat)
Here it is, folks, the easiest apple tart in the world!
The inspiration came from Pioneer Woman, the perspiration came from Daring Cooks.
Roll out puff pastry dough to and approximate measurement of 6" by 12". You can use the frozen store bought variety, or go hog-wild and make your own as I did.
Cut a few apples in half, remove the cores, and slice up nice and thin. Don't peel the apples, because that's too much effort. In a bowl, combine the apple slices with a handful of brown sugar and let macerate (sit and get juicy) for about 15 minutes, or until your oven heats up to about 425F.
Layer the apples on nice and pretty-like if you're serving for brunch, or just heap 'em on if you're putting one in the oven to send off to school with a late riser for breakfast.
Cook until the pastry is puffed, the apples are soft, and the sugar shows some carmelization action. Cut with a very sharp knife or a pizza cutter. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve.
PW dished these up with vanilla ice cream and called it dessert. I called it breakfast.
I'll let you choose the right answer here, if there is one.
