When my husband suggested that we give the kids just one bag to collect apples when we went apple picking in Julian recently, I immediately instructed him to get them one each.  Why not, it would be fun, there would be less fighting, they love apples …

Then we had baskets filled with apples at home.  The kids couldn't eat them fast enough, we had already made applesauce at school so I didn't want to do that again.  So I made an apple tart. 

apple tart recipe


  • Apples – I had about 10 small ones, but 4-5 large ones would work too.
  • Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets – 1 sheet defrosted
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider
  • 1 tbs Blue Agave Sweetener
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 2 tbs White Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 tbs Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tbs Butter (softened)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • Confectioners Sugar

Peel and core the apples.  Place in a slow cooker with the apple cider and agave sweetener.  Stir to combine.  Place a cinnamon stick on each side of the slow cooker.  Cook on low for 4 hours.

About 30 minutes before the slow cooker is due to finish, turn the oven onto 400F. 

Lay the puff pastry sheet on parchment paper on a cookie tray.  Spoon apple mixture onto the pastry leaving approximately 1 inch all around for the pastry to rise.

Combine the flour, granulated sugar, butter and cinnamon in a bowl.  Crumble over the top of the apple.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes – or until puff pastry has risen around the apples and browned a little.

Set aside to cool for about 5 minutes then sift a little confectioners sugar over the top.  Serve with vanilla ice-cream.

This would make a lovely addition to your Thanksgiving meal.
