Apple Tarte Tatin


Created for the Tarte Tatin Dish


  • Dust a clean surface and a rolling pin with flour and roll out your puff pastry until it’s just over 1/8 “ thick, set aside.
  • Place the tarte tatin pan on a medium heat and add the sugar, Calvados and vanilla seeds. Let the sugar dissolve and cook until the mixture forms a light caramel.
  • Once the caramel looks and smells delicious – it should be a lovely chestnut brown – add apples. Carefully stir everything in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until the apples start to soften. Add the cubed butter, then lay the pastry over the top. Quickly and carefully tuck the pastry down right into the edges – it’s best to use a wooden spoon so you don’t touch the caramel.
  • Bake the tarte tatin for about 30- 35 minutes, or until golden, with crispy pieces bubbling up from under the edges. Take it out of the oven. Using a serving plate or board larger than the tarte tatin pan, place on top, then quickly, carefully and confidently turn it out.
