Ingredients

  • 4 small Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, halved
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar
  • 40g butter, chopped
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • Créme fraîche, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 200°C. Combine the apple, lemon juice and vanilla in a medium bowl.

STEP 2

Place the sugar in an 18cm (base measurement) ovenproof frying pan over high heat and cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, for 5 mins or until the sugar melts and is golden brown. Remove from heat. Sprinkle the butter over the melted sugar and swirl the pan to combine. Arrange the apple, cut-side up, over the butter mixture in the pan. Drizzle with any juices from the bowl.

STEP 3

Place 1 pastry sheet on a clean work surface. Top with the remaining pastry to make a stack. Using a plate as a guide, cut a 25cm disc from the pastry. Place over the apple in the pan and quickly tuck the pastry edge into the side of the pan with a spoon.

STEP 4

Bake for 20-25 mins or until pastry is puffed and golden brown. Set aside for 2 mins to rest. Place a serving plate over the top of the pan. Carefully invert the tart onto the plate. Cut into wedges and serve immediately with créme fraîche.
