You may have been at a bakery and seen beautiful squares of glazed apple tart and been impressed with the gorgeous sheen upon the thinly sliced apples. As you bite into the square, crackles of pastry flake at first bite, followed by the taste of the sweet glaze and tart apples. Simply a bite of perfection. You can make this French Apple Tart at home. It's not as difficult as it may seem, when taking a shortcut.
Making the tart as the pastry shop does is very involved, taking hours to make. They are most likely making their crust using sweet creamy butter and flour, folding and rolling to make the best flaky pastry dough. My shortcut is to use frozen puff pastry. Doing so makes this dessert complete in roughly an hour.
*The apple juices may run off the parchment paper and slightly burn onto the sheet pan. Once the tart is removed from the pan, place the sheet pan in a wide sink, filling the pan with water to soak. The burnt apple juices will hydrate and clean off easily after soaking for about 20-30 minutes.
