Apple tart with honey and almond flakes (very light)

An easy to make tart with puff pastry, apple slices, baked and then sprinkled with honey and almond flakes. Very light and flavorful, tastes like home. Perfect for a relaxed afternoon or evening when you feel like something sweet but uncomplicated. We recommend using butter-based puff pastry for this, as the other types of pastry may puff too much during baking and the taste isn't quite the same either. Enjoy :)

Last year: Tortellini with white wine sauce and tofu, Simple artichoke dip and Aloo Baingan (Indian)

Ingredients (serves 4):
  • 200-250 g puff pastry
  • 3-4 red apples
  • 4-5 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons almond flakes

Cut a circle out of the puff pastry. Ours had a diameter of 23 cm (we used a large plate to cut it). Place it on a paper-lined baking sheet and poke it all over with a fork.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Put the tray in the fridge to cool while you peel the apples:

Slice them up into very thin slices:

Get the baking tray out of the fridge and arrange the slices on the pastry base in a radial pattern:

Put it in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Take out:

Sprinkle the honey and almond flakes on top:

Cut into slices (around 4 - quarters actually) and dig in! :)
