Lazy Apple tart

I am a lazy cook. I prefer yummy dishes that are easy to make. So when I found this recipe in an old magazine (2010) I was sorting, I was ecstatic. That’s because dough and I aren’t friends.


  • 1 roll (370g-500g) puff pastry
  • 6 apples (Gala, Cox or Granny Smith), cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 4tbsp apricot jam


  • Preheat the oven to 220˚C.
  • Leave the puff pastry roll at room temperature for around 15 mins so it does not crack when you unroll it. When ready, place it to a buttered/ lined baking tray.
  • Prick all over with a fork so it doesn’t puff bubbles during cooking. You can pre-cook it for 10 mins if you want before putting the apples in.
  • Lay the apple slices in neat rows, each slice overlapping the next one.
  • Bake in the oven until the pastry is crisp brown and the apples are singed with colour, around 30 minutes, longer if needed.
  • Remove from oven and cool.
  • Meanwhile, heat the jam with water until it simmers and stir to break it down into liquid. Brush the liquified jam to glaze the surface of the apple tart and serve.
