  • 1 sheet puff pastry, frozen
  • 4 apples, cored & thinly sliced I like to use my Johnny Apple Peeler mentioned above
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. apple pie spice
  • dash of salt
  • vanilla frosting *


  • Thaw one sheet of puff pastry until pliable to open without cracking but still cool to the touch.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out into a 8" x 14" rectangle. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Score edges of puff pastry creating a ½ inch border all around the pastry. You don't want to cut all the way through. Just make a score.
  • Peel and slice apples. Toss with lemon juice.
  • Mix cinnamon, apple pie spice, a dash of salt, and brown sugar. Add to apples and toss together. Let sit for a few minutes to draw out some juices.
  • Arrange apples as desired over puff pastry making sure to keep them inside scored border. Pour any remaining brown sugar mixture over apples.
  • Bake at 30-35 minutes or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown. 
  • Warm vanilla frosting in microwave until it reaches drizzling consistency. Drizzle over tart.
    Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • If you don't want to use a store bought icing you can mix together powdered sugar and a touch of milk until desired consistency.
