Apple Tarte Tatin Recipe

– 5-6 medium Granny smith apple – 2/3 cup granulated sugar – 1/3 cup water – 5 tbsp unsalted butter – 1/4 tsp table salt – vanilla ice cream to serve with, optional


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare the apples by first peeling all of them.

Pour the sugar into a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, dispersing the sugar all over the bottom of the pan. Add in the water.

Slide the skillet off the heat temporarily and sprinkle in the salt. Add the unsalted butter, and then move the skillet back over to medium-low heat.

Add the apples into the caramel and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, until the apples are tender.

Meanwhile, roll out your pie dough or puff pastry dough to elongate it a bit to ensure it can cover the diameter of your 10 inch-skillet.

Once the apples are tender, use two forks to help you flip each apple wedge over so that the cut side is facing up. Arrange the apples in a radial pattern.
