This apple tart is super simple to make and sometimes simple is better. Instead of making tart dough I used a frozen sheet of puff pastry (you will notice a theme with this I love frozen puff pastry). But of course you could make your own or use pie crust. You only need a few ingredients: puff pastry, lemon, sugar, apples, butter, and jelly/jam. I made this with ingredients I had on hand when I saw a few apples staring at me day after day in the fridge.

First prepare the puff pastry. I used the same method as in Easy Sausage and Gruyere Quiche. The only difference was the shape.

While the pastry was baking I prepared the apples. I peeled and sliced 3 large green apples.

To the apples I added 3 tb of sugar, the juice of 1 lemon, and 1 tb of melted butter.

I warmed about 1/4 cup of peach jam to spread on the bottom of the tart. Apricot would be good also or maybe orange.

Then I placed on the apples

Bake at 375 for 30-40 min depending on how thick you sliced your apples
