This is because making a puff pastry dough at home takes much more time. Now, we always advocate for making things at home, because the truth is they always taste and look better, in our opinion, but we know that not everyone has the desire or the time to make a puff pastry dough from scratch, so a great idea is to buy fresh or frozen puff pastry dough at the supermarket to use at home, as to save some effort and time.
Now, for those who want to cook it at home, here is our recipe for puff pastry dough, which is simply marvellous.
This tart is very simple, having the dough, just mix the apples with more ingredients and place them on top of the dough, then shape the dough and bake it all together. It is an easy recipe that has a spectacular result. I can assure you, everyone falls in love with this tart.
It is best to eat it while still hot, right after baking. It is so delicious that it is almost addictive. Really, when you start eating it, it’s hard to stop because it has a very good balance of sweet, fresh and a little savory flavor because of the dough itself.
If you notice calls for oats. This is because we use them to absorb the moisture that the apples release inside the oven while cooking. In the end, when everything is ready, the oat flavor is not noticeable at all, so don’t worry, it will just help to absorb the liquids.

Puff pastry apple tart
- 1 piece of puff pastry (11,80 inches x 7,90 inches) (30 cm x 20 cm) aproximately
- 2-3 green apples
- The juice of 1/2 lemon or 1 lime
- 3 tbsp (1.60 oz) (45 gr) white sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon, ground
- 2 tbsp (1.05 oz) (30 gr) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small dices
- 1 tbsp rolled oats or almond flour
- 3 tbsp peach jam or marmalade, for decorating
- Preheat the oven to 392º F (200° C). Line a large rectangular baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Peel and core the apples, then cut them into thin slices, place them in a bowl and add the lemon juice to prevent them from oxidizing.
- Separately, take the piece of puff pastry and place it on the baking sheet. With a knife, mark (without cutting) a rectangle about 1 inch (2.5 cm) inward from the edge of the dough on every side, so as to get a space that will later serve to hold the tart, to form a perimeter of sorts. Also, prick the inside of the puff pastry several times with a fork, to make the inside of the rectangle nos as puffy when baked, as that's where the apple slices will go.
- Add to the puff pastry, without touching the marked edge, the flaked oatmeal or almond flour evenly. Separately, in a small bowl, mix the sugar with the cinnamon powder.
- Place the apple slices on the puff pastry dough, on top of the oat flakes, trying to arrange them well, overlapping a little. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the apples and then add the cubed butter all over them.
- Fold the edges of the puff pastry that had been marked over the apples (towards the inside of the tart), folding the corners of the pastry over each other. Bake the tart at 392º F (200°C) for about 30 minutes until golden brown and when the apples are slightly soft and more transparent.
- While the tart is baking, place the apricot jam in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds to make it more liquid.
- Once the tart is ready, take it out of the oven and brush it with the jam using a kitchen brush. Cut it into 6 equal portions and it is ready to eat. It can be eaten hot and served with vanilla ice cream.
