Dreaming of Autumn

Honestly can it get any hotter, I love summer and all but jeez we went from sweatshirts to swimsuits in a matter of days. I enjoy the slow warm up and cool down of the beginning and end of summer. It transitions into my favorite season, Autumn. It is the perfect weather for me, I can still wear sandals, but they can be comfortably paired with jeans and a long sleeve shirt. And some of my favorite foods can be found, like apple pie, pumpkin ice cream, did you think I was going to name savory foods? Come on now. So while sitting in my house with the AC cranked up, I'm dreaming of cooler weather and food that warms your soul.

Apple Tart

3 Apples, cored and thinly sliced - Use whatever is your favorite I used Gala
1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed if frozen
2 tablespoons of apricot jam

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a parchment lined baking sheet place the sheet of puff pastry. Arrange the apple slices so that they are layering over each other in either straight rows or starting at a diagonal in one corner, making sure to leave a small border around the edge. Fill in any spots that look sparse after covering the whole pastry with apples. You may have some apple slices left over depending on the size of your apples. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until the edges start to turn a golden brown. Place the baking sheet on a cooling rack. Melt the jam in the microwave until it is completely melted and using a pastry brush, brush a thin layer of jam over the whole tart. Let cool to room temperature and serve.
