**** The GIVEAWAY has ended. Stay tuned for another in the near future!****
It’s Dessert Week! Plus a GIVEAWAY! It can’t get any better than this!
First, the giveaway. At this moment, there 88 likes on Mind, Body & Belly’s Facebook page and when it reaches 100, I will choose one random MB&B Facebook fan as the winner!!! Have you liked MB&B’s Facebook page yet? If not, do it. Now.
Today, I’ll be showing you how to make Apple Tarte Tatin. It tastes like apple pie and can be done in 20 minutes. It is made with a total of 4 ingredients in small crème brûlée dishes. AND one lucky MB&B Facebook fan will win four of the crème brûlée dishes plus an Apple Tart Tatin recipe card and a finger tip peeler. Aka everything you need to make this dish (minus the food though).
These Apple Tarte Tatins are actually quite easy. First, pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Take a tablespoon of room temperature butter and spread it around as best as you can. It may be a little clumpy, just spread the clumps out around the inside of the dish. Sprinkle the same amount of brown sugar over the butter. Honestly, I didn’t measure either of these. Use your best judgement. It’s going to melt and spread out.
Next take an apple. Any kind of apple. I chose granny smith since they are sweeter. Peel it with your hand peeler or a paring knife. Cut the apple into thick slices and remove the core. Then cut them into thinner slices. I cut the thick slices into thirds. Also, I only needed one apple for two of the dishes. I’ve made this with bananas instead of apples before. It’s quite tasty too!
Lay the slices a pretty as you can on top of the brown sugar and butter in the dishes. Next unfold a thawed puff pastry sheet. Cut a circle out of the puff pastry to put on top of the apple slices in the dishes. I used an extra empty dish turned over to make an impression for sizing in the pastry.
Put the dishes on a cookie sheet and pop ‘em in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden. The final step is to take the dish and flip it over on a plate upside down. In theory, it will slip right out. Since the dish is hot, I took a folded up paper towel to maneuver the dish over.
Serve with ice cream and caramel. I’d also suggest adding in cinnamon… before the oven and/or after. I didn’t. It was an after thought that I wish was a before thought cause I think it would be a great addition!
Now that you’ve liked the Facebook page, go tell your friends to like it too!! Please share it to your friends! I would be so grateful! Plus, I’m not giving anything away until we reach that 100 fan mark! 😛
