Spiced Maple Glazed Apple Whipped Feta Tart. Nothing has made my house smell so good. The lingering smells of this simple, yet impressive dessert is just one of the reasons it should be baked up. I am really really stoked for Thanksgiving food and all of the holiday food that comes after that. With that being said, ringing in November with this Puff Pastry Apple Tart is the only way I ever want to ring in November!
The key to this puff pastry apple tart is the spiced maple glaze that is whipped into the feta, drizzled on the apples, and brushed on the edges of the puff pastry. Because we need a bit of maple glaze in every bite you know?
I am here for all of the Fall baking and I plan to make this rustic apple tart with whipped feta as many times as I can while apples are in season. I mean, is there really anything better than baking on a chilly fall day? I love hunkering down for the weekend and baking up a storm! Since my parents have recently moved to Denver, I have been lucky enough to share the wealth of baked goods so we don't eat every last one of them. Because we would!
This super simple apple tart recipe is fail proof and will totally impress you, your family, and friends. It is Fall's coziest recipe of all and I am already itching to make it again!
HOW TO MAKE SPICED MAPLE GLAZE AND WHIPPED FETA
To make your spiced maple glaze, add maple syrup, butter and spices to a small sauce pot over medium-high heat. Let this simmer for about 2 minutes and then remove from heat to thicken slightly. To make the whipped feta, add your feta, oil, water and one tablespoon of maple glaze to a food processor or blender and mix until smooth and creamy.
ASSEMBLE PUFF PASTRY APPLE TART
Begin by rolling out puff pastry into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Move the pastry to your parchment paper lined sheet panned and prick with a fork in the middle of the pastry, leaving a ½-1″ border around the edges. We leave a border so that the pastry rises on the edges keeping everything contained on the inside! Spread whipped feta evenly over the puff pastry and drizzle with 1 more tablespoon of the maple glaze. Layer up your apple slices with the skin facing up and brush with maple glaze. Brush your puff pastry edges with an egg wash and then more maple glaze. Sprinkle with Turbinado sugar and black pepper!
There are no wrong ways to serve this puff pastry apple tart. However, I highly suggest serving it a bit warm, with a light sprinkle of flaky salt topped off with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
