What Is An Air Fryer?

What Are Apple Tarts?

In medieval times, apple tarts were considered a delicacy. Today, they are still popular and can be found in many restaurants and bakeries. But what exactly is an apple tart?

Apple tarts are basically pies with apples as the main ingredient. They are usually made with puff pastry or pie crust and filled with apples that have been peeled, cored, and sliced. The apples are then mixed with sugar and spices before being placed in the pastry shell. They can be baked or fried, but most people prefer them baked because this results in a crispy crust and soft apple filling. Apple tarts make a delicious dessert or snack, and you can also serve them for breakfast or brunch. So if you’re looking for a new way to enjoy

Ingredient Notes:

Puff Pastry: The easiest way to make an apple tart is with frozen puff pastry dough. You can either thaw it in the refrigerator overnight or leave it at room temperature to thaw. Working with cold puff pastry is more manageable than working with puff pastry that has been thawed at room temperature. But either method works.

Apples: The best apples for this recipe are Granny Smith or Honeycrisp. They hold up well during baking and provide great flavor, so I always use these particular types when preparing my desserts!

Ground Cinnamon: I love that it adds great flavor to the apples, and nothing pairs better with apples than ground cinnamon!

Pro Tips:

Apples: Do not slice your apples too thin. Otherwise, they will burn. Slice them about 1/4 inch, which will allow them to become tender, but you will retain some of the texture of the apples.

Preheating: This recipe works best if your air fryer is preheated first. The minute your puff pastry hits the hot air, it will start puffing up.

Timing: Since every air fryer is slightly different, check on your puff pastry as it cooks up. You get a delicious and flaky apple tart made in your air fryer!

Making These In An Air Fryer Oven: If you are making these in an air fryer oven, make sure that you place the puff pastry tars on the bottom shelf or racks so that both the inside and outside are cooking; up; to perfection!

FAQ

Do you cook apples before putting them in a pie?

No, you add them to the puff pastry; they are uncooked when you add them. Since they are cut so thin, the apples will cook up perfectly!

Do I need to pre-cook puff pastry for a pie?

No, the dough will go into the air fryer raw. The air fryer is a perfect way to cook up puff pastry since the hot air that spins around cooks the dough to perfection and causes it to rise. The result is a light and flaky apple tart, made in minutes!

Do I need to peel apples before adding them to pie?

You can or not, and it’s really up to you. There is no reason to peel the apples, and the skin will become tender and juicy. And the color looks beautiful on the apple tart.
