Mini Apple Tarts

I had some pie crusts in the fridge that needed using, as well as apples on the counter suffering the same fate. Also, I have these cute little mini tart pans, and so this recipe came to be. This is a really quick dessert (or breakfast) to throw together, especially if you use the refrigerated dough.

Mini Apple Tarts

1 Refrigerated Pie Crust (or homemade)
2-3 Apples, Cored and Thinly Sliced
1 Tbsp (approximately) Sugar
3 Tbsp Apricot Jam
1 Tbsp Calvados, Rum, Water or Apple Brandy or Liqueur

Preheat oven to 350

Roll out and cut your pie crust to fit the mini tart pans. Press the crust into the pans and arrange the apple slices to fill the pans. Sprinkle with sugar and bake until the crust is nicely browned and the apples are soft, about 20-25 minutes.

Whisk together the apricot jam and liquid of choice. Brush over the tarts when they are warm out of the oven. Remove them from the pans and let them cool before enjoying.
