Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1/2 pkg
frozen puff pastry (1 sheet)
6
apples
1/2 c
apricot jam
1 - 2 Tbsp
water
1
egg yolk, beaten
2 Tbsp
toasted sliced almonds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Thaw pastry sheet. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into a 16"x12" rectangle. Cut into 12 (4-inch) squares. Cover with a dry cloth; set aside.
2
Peel apples; cut in half lengthwise. Remove cores; cut lengthwise incisions almost all of the way through each apple half, 1/16 to 1/8" apart. Do not cut all of the way through.
3
In a small saucepan, stir jam over low heat until melted. Stir in water, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make a thick puree.
4
Place 1 apple half on each square of pastry. Roll up edges slightly, folding in corners to make a bowl-shape around the apple. Brush egg yolk over pastry. Brush apples with warmed jam mixture.
5
Preheat oven to 400ºF (205ºC).
Arrange tarts on an ungreased baking sheet; let stand 15 minutes. Bake tarts 20 to 30 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Cool tarts, then brush with remaining jam mixture. Sprinkle evenly with almond slices.
