This simple yet elegant tart brings together the tastes of Rosh Hashana. An impressive finish to a festive meal, it comes together in just a few minutes leaving plenty of time for all the other cooking and preparations that go along with the holiday.


1 sheet frozen puff pastry (1/2 of a 17–ounce box)
3 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, halved, cored and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Pinch of salt
Cinnamon for sprinkling
2 tablespoons honey


Place frozen puff pastry on the counter and let thaw until it is soft enough to unfold without it cracking, approximately 40 minutes. Unfold pastry and cut in half.

Preheat oven to 415 degrees.

Place the two puff pastry rectangles onto a baking pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray or lined with parchment paper. Place apples, sugar, lemon juice and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine.

Allow to sit for a few minutes, until the juices start to come out of the apples.

Arrange apple slices on the pastry rectangles in a straight line, overlapping as you go. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown.

Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle with honey, using 1 tablespoon for each tart. Transfer to a serving tray and serve warm or at room temperature.


Yield: Serves 6-8
