  • A tempting twist on a traditional apple pastry recipe. This quick and easy apple tart is made with ready-made puff pastry then topped with apples and marzipan

    Ingredients

    • 212.5g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry, defrosted (we used 1 of the pastry sheets taken from Jus-Rol 425g pack)
    • 250g packet white marzipan, coarsely grated
    • 3 eating apples, halved and cored
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 1tbsp icing

    Method

    • Set the oven to 200°C. Put a flat baking sheet in the oven to heat up.

    • Unroll pastry on to another flat baking tray. Sprinkle marzipan over, leaving a 2.5cm (1in) border around the sides.

    • Hold an apple half in a bridge shape and thinly slice. Lift up the sliced apple at the ends and position into a corner of the pastry, on top of the marzipan. Press gently, to spread the slices slightly. Repeat with the other five apple halves. Dust icing sugar over apples.

    • Place tart, still on its baking sheet, on top of the preheated baking sheet, and cook for 30 mins or until the pastry is golden and the apples tender.
