If you are anything like our family, then this is the perfect time to go to the apple orchard. With all those apples at the house, this is the perfect dessert for a yummy treat after dinner! This is a great and easy dessert for the fall with only 3 ingredients!
All you need is:
1/4 cup sugar
granny smith apples or any type you prefer
You will also need a little:
Simply preheat your oven to 425 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Lay 1 sheet of thawed puff pastry on a very lightly floured surface and gently rub the top with a bit of flour. With a rolling pin, roll out into a 10 X 15 inch rectangle about 1/8 inch thick.
Place rectangle on parchment lined baking sheet and put in freezer for 5 minutes while you prepare the apples.
Core 2 granny smith apples, then cut them in half lengthwise, and slice into very thin half moons, leaving the skin on.
With a sharp paring knife, cut a 1 inch border along the edges of the puff pastry, being careful not to cut through the dough.
Prick the inside of the border all over with a fork, then sprinkle half of the 1/4 cup sugar.
Arrange the apple slices, slightly overlapping, inside the border, and sprinkle the top with the rest of the sugar.
Bake until puff pastry is golden brown and apples are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve warm or at room temperature.
You can even add some vanilla ice cream or do what I did and get yourself some of this delicious caramel topping and drizzle some on top for a caramel apple puff pastry!
