Brie and Apple Tarts

Look familiar?  You may have noticed this picture from our blog title.  Our friend, Michelle, came over with the ingredients today. If only we could thank her more for these :)
Oh, and the answer is yes. They were just as delicious as they look.


1 box (2 sheets) of puff pastry, thawed
1 green apple
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon of butter
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 medium wedge of brie
1 egg
flour (for rolling)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Unfold puff pastry onto a lightly floured board and roll is slightly until until its a 10 by 10-inch square. Cut the sheet into quarters with a sharp knife. Place a slice of brie onto each of the squares.  Brie doesn't have a strong flavor, so don't worry about putting too much.  Next place 2-3 thin slices of apple on top of the brie.

Next, sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and brown sugar. Then top with a small pat of butter.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.  Brush the border of each square with the egg wash, and fold 2 opposite corners to the center.  Brush the tops of all the folded pastries with the egg wash. Place the pastries on the sheet pan.

Bake for about 20 minutes, rotating the pan once during baking, until puffed and brown. Serve warm.
