Apple walnut tarte Tatin

Posted on 11 November 2012

Hi, happy Sunday morning!

We’re excited to share with you a dessert this time, a perfectly autumnal one, too. Our friend Janice celebrated her birthday a couple of weeks ago and we brought her these apple walnut tarte Tatins that Jem decided on because it’s a fairly easy recipe and doesn’t take much time to make. Delicious, too. Plus, apple pies—in any form—are always a hit with all our kids.


1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, diced
125 grams walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 golden delicious apples, or any firm apple, sliced evenly
your favourite puff pastry recipe

Place sugar and butter on pie plate. Heat in preheated 375˚F oven for about 10 minutes or until butter and sugar are melted.

Add walnuts and sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Put back in the oven and heat for another 5 to 8 minutes or until caramelized.

Arrange sliced apple pieces in two layers over caramelized sugar, butter, and walnuts. Cover with puff pastry. Bake at 375˚F for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven.

Place cake platter over the cooked pie and flip over.

Makes 1 pie. (As seen in the pictures, we made 2 recipes.)
