Easy Mini Apple Tarts

INGREDIENTS (about 6-8 tarts)

2 medium golden delicious apples, peeled and sliced (not too thinly)

6-8 tsp honey

1/4 cup pinenuts

1 roll puff pastry


1 beaten egg


  1. Cut out rounds of pastry from the pastry roll with a large cookie cutter or glass (8 cm/ 3 1/2 inch diameter).
  2. Place a tsp of honey on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little bit of pinenuts. Repeat with  other  teaspoonfuls to mark the place of the tarts.
  3. Now place 2 or 3 whole slices of apple (sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent discoloration) on top of the honey. Add a dash of cinnamon  and then top  with the pastry round.
  4. Brush the pastries with beaten egg and prick them with a fork.
  5. Bake in a 200deg C (190deg F) oven for about 15-20 minutes until golden and crispy.
  6. Gently flip the pastries over with a spatula onto a cooling rack.
  7. Dust with powdered sugar when cool if desired.
