Apple tarts
Crisped pastry filled free style with apples, citrus and a hint of cinnamon.


2 apples, (Bramley if possible but not essential) peeled, halved and cored

2 tbsp lemon juice

500g ready rolled puff pastry

Knob of butter, melted

2 tsp caster sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Icing sugar to dust

Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas mark 7.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and butter it lightly.

Finely slice the apple halves into equal size pieces, put in a bowl and coat with lemon juice and toss gently.

On a floured surface, unroll the pastry and cut 10cm rounds with a pastry cutter or round a small saucer with a knife.

Place the pastry rounds on the prepared baking tray.

Layer and arrange the apple slices on top in a circle, slightly overlapping and nearly to the edge of the pastry.

Brush with a little of the melted butter, then sprinkle with the caster sugar and cinnamon.

Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden.

Allow to cool a little before dusting with icing sugar.
