Ingredients

2 9-inch pie crusts or 1 sheet of puff pastry
3 apples
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1/3 cup bourbon
1/4 cup apple cider


Preheat the oven to 375°F.


On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8" thick.


Using a round cutter, about 5" in diameter, cut out 6 circles of dough, place them on a parchment lined baking sheet, and refrigerate, or freeze for longer storage.


Peel, core and slice the apples 1/8" thick.


In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat until it begins to brown slightly.


Add the sugar and let it melt for about 2 minutes.


Add the apples and cinnamon and cook until the apples just begin to soften, about 2 minutes.


Carefully add the bourbon.


The bourbon might ignite, if it does, it will burn off in a minute or so.


Continue cooking until the apples are soft, about 3 to 4 minutes.


Strain the apple slices and reserve the liquid.


Return the liquid to the stove, add the apple cider and simmer until the mixture reduces to a syrup.


Remove the pastry rounds from the refrigerator and prick each round several times with a fork. Arrange the apple slices in a single layer on top of each round.


Bake the tarts in the lower half of the oven until the pastry is crisp and golden, about 8 to 10 minutes.


Remove from the oven and brush the top of each tart with the syrupy cider mixture.
