Salted Caramel Apple Tart with Peanut Butter Whipped Cream

Salted Caramel Apple Tart with Peanut Butter Whipped Cream is my take on a classic apple tart. Salted caramel, apple and peanut butter, this tart should be called ‘The Sound of Music’ because it’s topped it with my favourite things!

I have a confession to make, the apples are not from The Delectable Garden. I was going to make this with the crab apples I discovered in summer. However I was busy and didn’t get time to collect the apples, then when I got back from St Lucia the wildlife had helped themselves and I’d missed my chance.

This tart is gorgeous and so easy to make. It took me 15 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake. I normally make things you can prepare in advance to save time in the kitchen but this is so simple you can make it whilst your dinner is digesting. It serves 8-10, depending on your portion sizes.

Salted Caramel Apple Tart with Peanut Butter Whipped Cream

320g Ready rolled puff pastry, I use Jus-Rol
2-3 Braeburn apples
1 tbsp Bonne Maman salted caramel
Juice of half a lemon
1 Free range egg, lightly beaten

Step one: Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/Gas mark 7. Core and thinly slice the apples then toss in lemon juice. Unroll the pastry onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment.

Step two: Score a centimetre boarder around the edge of the pastry. Slightly overlap the apple slices on the pastry in rows ensuring you don’t go over the boarder. Brush the edges with egg and pop in the oven.

Step Three: Meanwhile gently heat a table spoon of salted caramel in a pan. After ten minutes remove the tart from the oven and brush the apples with the heated caramel and bake for a further ten minutes until the pastry is crisp and apples are tender.

Step Four: Allow to cool slightly and serve with a dollop of Peanut Butter Cream and drizzle with heated salted caramel.

Peanut Butter Cream

300ml Double cream
2 tbsp Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 tbsp Icing sugar

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until the cream just starts to stiffen (soft peaks).

You can make your own salted caramel, check out my Blackberry, Pear and Toffee Apple Crumble for the recipe. I discovered Bonne Maman salted caramel whilst shopping last week and had to buy it.
