    Tarte Tatin

    • 3 big golden apples Cut into big chunks
    • 1 and 1/4 cups white sugar
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter Plus some extra to grease the tart pan
    • 1/4 cup milk


    • Cut the apples, and cut them in big chunks. In a bowl, toss them and add some sugar (1/4 cup). Let to rest for around 15 to 30 minutes while we prepare the caramel.
    • Pre-heat the oven at 205ºC.
    • In a pot, melt the butter and gently add the remaining sugar. Stir continuously.
    • The sugar will start bubbling at some point, continue stirring then add the milk. Continue stirring until the caramel reaches a much harder, texture, kinda like a spreadable.
    • Pour the caramel into an already greased tart pan, and then place the apples on top, arranging them as you want (we tried to do a pattern but then we were too excited and just made them all fit in).
    • Roll out the puff pastry and cover your pan. Tuck in the pastry inside the pan and then make a hole with the help of a knife in the middle of the pastry.
    • Place inside a previously heated oven (205ºC) for around 30 to 40 minutes. Take out of the oven when the pastry is cooked and looks brownish.
    • To plate it, place a large enough plate on top. Hold the pan and plate together with a hand towel and then flip it carefully. It's okay if some caramel spills, there will plenty more left. Lift the pan and ta-da. It's there!
    • Enjoy it with some vanilla ice-cream or just plain. You choose!
