Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
