Is there anything better than a really easy dessert that seems fancy? Ok, maybe nap time, Diet Coke with pellet ice in a styrofoam cup, a good sale… but the dessert thing is right up there.
Enter this apple puff pastry. Three steps, maybe 4, and you’re done. And you can feed a handful of people, or 2 handfuls with very little extra effort!
Start out with frozen puff pastry. Really, Pepperdine Farm is the only brand where I live. There are two sheets in each package so you can either do one or both. Let it sit out for about 20 minutes to thaw a little. Unfold them and cut on the lines where they were folded. You should have three pieces. Put them in a greased baking sheet.
Then, thinly slice 2 apples (4 if you’re doing both pastry sheets). I used Gala because that’s what we always have, but you can use any really. Except Red Delicious because they’re usually soggy and gross. Toss the apple slices with 2t lemon juice and a cup of brown sugar (if you’re using 4 apples, I wouldn’t double the brown sugar; maybe 2 1/2-3 cups and call it good).
Bake at 425F for 14-16 minutes until the pastry is golden. Don’t undertake or the pastry will be soggy. Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
