1sheet of puff pastry
3 eating apples
100 grams of caster sugar
60 grams of unsalted butter

Cut a circle of puff pastry , Get a non sticky 1 inch deep cake tin. 20 centimetre round.
Melt the sugar in a saucepan do not stir , when the sugar is malted add the butter with a wooden spoon stir in to the sugar until you have a lovely caramel colour. Pour in to the tin. Add your cored and peeled apple chunks closely fitted around in the sugar mixture, Put the round of puff pastry on the top tucking the edges under as far as you can. Cut little holes all over the pastry brush with milk and sprinkle over some caster sugar. Pop in oven at 200c. Then turn down to 175 c after 10 minutes. Cook for another 30 minutes. Keep your eye on it as my oven is very different to yours. Take out when puff pastry is cooked and leave to cool for an hour then with a plate on top turn over. There you have your apple tartatan.

Linda x sorry I had to take a photo of it before it all went a very popular dish in our house.



The taste reminds me of the toffee apple man that used to come round when I was a kid. X

looks and sounds delicious, what is the texture of the butter sugar when cooked is it chewy or brittle?

It is neither chewy or brittle, as long as you don’t stir the sugar when it’s melting, when melted stir in the butter stirring all the time until a golden colour, then pour over the apples and put in oven, the texture is a lovely soft taste of toffee apple, you must keep your eye on the bake so that the puff pastry is just cooked and risen nicely.
