Puff pastry is incredibly easy to use. I like to use Pepperidge Farm’s puff pastry, which is widely available and happens to be vegan, making these tarts dairy-free. A sheet of store-bought dough thaws on the countertop in about half an hour; then you can unfold and bake it with whatever toppings or fillings you choose. These apple tarts may just be squares of dough with an egg wash and some sliced apples on top, but they look like something you’d buy at a fancy patisserie. Serve them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for an impressive, beautiful dessert.

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, beat the egg and water until no streaks remain. In another small bowl, stir together the sugar and pumpkin pie spice until evenly combined.
  2. Line the cooking pan with parchment paper.
  3. Cut the sheet of puff pastry into 4 approximately 4-inch squares, and place them on the lined cooking pan. Use a pastry brush to coat each piece of pastry with a light layer of the egg wash.
  4. Sprinkle 1 tsp of the spiced sugar onto each piece of pastry, leaving a 1/2-inch border of bare egg wash around the edges.
  5. On each pastry square, arrange one-quarter of the apple slices in an overlapping pattern on top of the spiced sugar. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of the spiced sugar on top of the apples.
  6. Preheat the oven on BAKE at 400°F and set the cooking time for 7 minutes.
  7. Bake the tarts in the preheated oven.
  8. The pastry will puff up dramatically as it cooks, and the middle will deflate when it cools down after cooking. When the cooking program ends, transfer the tarts to serving plates. Serve right away with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, if you like.
