This season marks the official start of pie season, which is the perfect time to go apple-picking with friends and family. This results in a ton of apples lying around in your kitchen, begging to be used. So, if we mix the need for delicious appetizers, the pie season, and all the apples lying around, we end up with these bite-sized apple pies. They taste just like the big pies we make for parties and gatherings, except they are really easy to make and much more fun (because everything bite-sized is better!). They make not only the best appetizers but also a delicious and laid-back dessert for something like Thanksgiving, which is especially handy if you are hosting dinner for a crowd.

However, the best part about this recipe, and the one that has made me fall completely head over heels in love with it, is that it's so delicious. They're tart, warm, and crunchy; chock full of all the apple flavor. The puff pastry crust is also incredibly flavorful, and while you can go with store-bought crust, the one made from scratch doesn't take a ton of time, and it's worth it!

Ingredients for the Puff Pastry Dough from Scratch

  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp fine Sea salt
  • 5 oz ~ 10 tablespoons Kerry Gold Unsalted Butter
  • 1/3 cup ice cold filtered water, plus ice cubes

Ingredients for the topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Grease a mini cupcake tray and set aside.
  3. Mix the dough ingredients well together with a pastry cutter and shape the dough into a square.
  4. Flour the rolling pin and roll the dough out into a long rectangle.
  5. Fold the dough up like a towel, folding it into thirds lengthwise, turning it sideways, and folding it again into thirds. Repeat this process six more times.
  6. Wrap the dough in saran wrap and refrigerate it overnight. The next day, cut the dough into small portions and roll them into balls. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze them for up to six months.
  7. On a floured surface knead the dough for 2 minutes. Fill the cupcake tray with the dough. Use your fingers and press the dough into cup shapes. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  8. In a bowl combine the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and brush the content of the crusts with it.
  9. Place the apple slices into each pie and take to the oven for 10 minutes.
  10. Garnish with caramel.

Why are Puff Pastry Apple Tarts so Popular?

  • Ease of preparation: The biggest selling point is undoubtedly their simplicity. Unlike traditional apple pies with their elaborate crusts, puff pastry apple tarts typically use store-bought puff pastry, eliminating the need for time-consuming dough making. This makes them perfect for busy home cooks or anyone wanting a quick and easy dessert.
  • Delicious flavor and texture: Despite their ease, puff pastry apple tarts don't compromise on taste or texture. The combination of flaky, buttery puff pastry and sweet, tender apples is a classic and consistently satisfying. The contrasting textures, with the crispy pastry and slightly softened apples, are incredibly appealing.
  • Versatility: These tarts are incredibly adaptable. You can personalize them with various spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom, toss the apples with nuts, drizzle with different sauces like caramel or chocolate, or even add other fruits like berries. This variety keeps things interesting and allows you to tailor the tart to your preferences.
  • Accessibility: The ingredients are readily available and affordable, making these tarts a budget-friendly dessert option. Additionally, they're perfect for any occasion, from weeknight treats to potlucks and even elegant dinner parties.
  • Visually appealing: The rustic, golden-brown puff pastry with the colorful filling creates a beautiful and appetizing presentation, adding to their overall appeal.
