Apple Strawberry Tart Recipe and Cost

Making an apple-strawberry tartFinished Tart

Nothing about this tart was on sale or cheap, but it was beautiful and tasty. I divided the tart into 8 slices, but probably should have kept it at 7 so everyone had enough. I gave ice cream and vanilla yogurt as options for the side.

Recipe for Apple Strawberry Tart

  • 1 Jonagold Apple, sliced thinly
  • 8 whole strawberry, halved (thawed if frozen)
  • One Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheet, defrosted and laid out

Roll the defrosted pastry sheet out slightly so a crust runs up the sides of a tart dish or pie dish. Make sure the seams are not broken. Place pastry sheet in the dish. Cut the points of the sheet with a pair of kitchen scissors and mold the remnants back into the sheet in any spot that looks too thin. Don't play in the dough long at all. Layer the apples in circles around the dish filling in completely. Put the strawberries cut side down in any shape. Ours came out like a star. Sprinkle two tablespoons of brown sugar over the tart. Carefully, and quickly fold the edges of the crust down to over the apples. Bake at 400 degrees (according to package directions) until the crust is golden. The colder the tart, the longer the bake time. Ours was around 30 minutes because I had kept it refrigerated.
