Parisian Apple Tartlet
(makes one 4-inch tartlet)
1 1/8-inch-think 4-inch circle cold puff pastry
1/2 firm sweet apple (such as Golden Delicious), peeled and cored
Light brown sugar
1 tsp butter, cut into three pieces
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put pastry circle on the sheet.
Cut the apple half into four chunks and center the chunks on the pastry circle. Sprinkle the apple with 1-2 tsp brown sugar - depending on how much sweetness you want - and dot with bits of butter.
Bake tartlet for 25 minutes, until the pastry is deeply browned and puffed up around the apple and the apple can be easily pierced with the tip of a knife.
