4-Ingredient Mini Apple Tarts Recipe: The Easiest Fall Recipe Ever

Apple pie may be the most well-known apple dessert, but this apple tart recipe is the easiest. With sweet, tender apples and a crust made with puff pastry dough, you can't go wrong serving this dessert recipe at Thanksgiving – or anytime.

Serve this easy fall recipe hot out of the oven with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. You could add a few shakes of cinnamon, too.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes plus 30 minutes to chill 
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 sheet (half a 17.3 ounce package) frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced thinly (about 1/4-inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry to about 1/16-inch thickness. Cut dough into four 6-inch rounds. Transfer rounds to the baking sheet and use a fork to prick dough all over. Chill for 15 minutes or more.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange apple slices on dough rounds. Fold dough up creating a border around the apples. Chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Brush apples with butter and then sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake tarts until apples are tender and pastry is crisp, approximately 30 to 35 minutes.
