Apple Tartlet Recipe

Spiced Apple Tartlet

Flickr user c3lsius_bb

This deliciously spiced apple tartlet recipe is a quick and easy treat to make when you're in a rush. They taste best when eaten within a few hours of being made. For the coziest indulgence, take a warm-from-the-oven apple tartlet, dust it with a bit of powdered sugar, and serve it with a petite scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tart cooking apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar or raw turbinado sugar


Preheat the oven to 375F. Cut the puff pastry and fit it into 6 lightly greased individual tartlet molds. Trim the excess pastry from the edges, leaving 1/2 inch overhang to fold over the filling.

In a medium bowl, stir the granulated sugar, brown sugar, cornstarch, and ground cinnamon until they are thoroughly blended. Gently toss the sliced apples in the sugar mixture.

Divide the sugar-spiced apples among the prepared tartlet molds and fold the edges over the apples. Sprinkle the pastries with the coarse sugar. Arrange the tartlets on a baking sheet and bake them in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until they turn golden brown and the apples are tender.

Allow the tartlets to cool for at least 30 minutes and serve them warm or at room temperature.

This apple tartlet recipe makes 6 servings.

Since discovering 5 spice powder we have never looked back. In this recipe we used 1/2 tsp of 5 spice to replace the cinnamon, sensational! Try it in or on ham, sticky buns or anywhere else you would use cinnamon, cloves, etc. It is a natural with maple syrup. I even add it to sausage. The basic recipe works very well. Thank you!
