I really enjoy having people over for dinner and cooking yummy food for them. I don't do it to show off my cooking skills (I am not a fantastic cook I can just follow a recipe), but it is a way I show I care for my family and friends. I love making people happy by giving them food they enjoy.
As I often put lots of effort into my main, I will either ask my guests to bring dessert, or I will whip up something really easy.
This recipe is one of my favourite quick and easy desserts and it is made of things I generally always have on hand. Because I generally have all the ingredients it is also good for those nights when I am craving something sweet.
Honey Apple Tarte Tatins
Melted butter, for greasing
3/4 cup honey
2 red apples peeled, cored and sliced into rings
2 sheets of store-bought puff pastry.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease a muffin tray. I use 12 cup tray but a larger capacity 6 cup would work better.
Step 2: Heat butter and honey in a large frypan, over a medium heat for 3 minutes until it is a light golden colour. Add the apple rings and cook for 5 mins.
Step 3: Arrange the apples in the base of the muffin tin and top with the honey mixture. Cut out six 7cm round from the pastry and place over the apple, tucking the edges under.
Step 4: Bake for 10 mins in the oven or until the pastry is golden. Allow to stand for 2 mins and then invert onto serving plates.
