Mini Apple Tart

I find tarts exclusively cheeky. Their crunchy crust and melt in the mouth filling has made an ethereal Bong Sweet Lover....a pattiserry fan!! Although I am just a beginner, and sometimes baking a whole cake really scares me off, I find these pastries extremely easy and fun to make.

As for the Apple Tart, I am head over heels in love with it. Apple and cinnamon is just the perfect match and apple tart is like there abode of love, where they nurture all their good stuff and turns them into something better, something more luscious!! And since, I am yet to find the confidence to make a whole big tart; I am finding my ways through these mini steps, by making mini tarts.

Mini Apple Tart
Makes 5 mini apple tarts

how to make Mini Apple Tart recipe and preparation

Ingredients:
1 storebought tart sheet
4 red apples
½ cup of brown sugar
1 and ½ tbsp of cinnamon powder
A pinch of salt
2-3 tbsp of salted caramel sauce
Whipped cream / ice cream to serve
Juice of ½ lime

Method:
Cut the apple into thin slices.
Take an ovenproof bowl and put all the apple slices into it.
Add the brown sugar, cinnamon powder, salt and lime juice.
Mix them well so that each and every slice of apple gets a good coat.
Now put them inside the microwave for 2-3 minutes. 
Stir them after every 30 seconds. The idea is to soften them before placing them on the tart sheet. Since we are making mini tarts, they will take comparatively less time and the apples may not soften in that short time. Let them come to room temperature before using.
Place the mini tart pans on the sheet upside down and cut the sheet, from a little distance around the pans.
Grease the tart pans with some melted butter and then place the sheet inside it.
Place the sliced and softened apples inside them.
Butter the edges of the tart sheet and pop them inside the oven at 200F for maximum 15 minutes or until the tart sheet is golden brown.
Drizzle some salted caramel sauce over the apples.

Serve them hot with a generous scoop of ice cream.
