1 box of frozen puff pastry (defrosted in the refrigerator) contains 2 sheets
4-5 medium sized apples, cored, peeled, cut in half and sliced into ¼ inch slices
2 tb butter – divided
½ cup sugar divided into quarter cups
3 tb apricot preserves
1 tb water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper layout a sheet of puff pastry per sheet. Arrange apples in a row pattern overlaying each one. Make sure to leave a ½ inch to 1-inch border all around You should have 2 rows of apple slices laid out horizontally and one row in the center vertically per each sheet of puff pastry. Cut each tablespoon of butter into 9 pieces and lay out on top of the apples. Sprinkle with a quarter cup of sugar per tart.
Bake in the middle rack of the oven for 30-35 minutes until the sugar is caramelized and apples pierce easily with a knife. Let tart cool for approximately 15 minutes. In the meantime, combine apricot preserves and water. Once tart is cooled glaze with the apricot glaze and enjoy!
