This recipe only takes 10 minutes of prep to make a delicious apple and cinnamon puff pastry tart, with fresh lemon and vanilla.



  • 250g puff pastry
  • 4 pink lady apples (or other sweet apples)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 40g granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Roll out puff pastry and line a 20cm quiche dish. With a fork, pierce puff pastry all over both the bottom and sides. Place in the fridge while you continue with the next steps.
  3. Core the apples using an apple corner. Slice into rings, approximately 3mm thick each.
  4. In a bowl, combine the apple rings with the sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and fresh lemon juice. Toss well to ensure the apples are fully coated and the ingredients are well distributed.
  5. Take the puff pastry out of the fridge. Fill with the apple rings, I like arranging these circularly, slightly overlapping each other, though you can do this however you like.
  6. Bake in the oven for approximately 20-25 minutes, until the puff pastry is golden and cooked and the apples have softened. Remove from the dish and either eat warm straight away or leave to cool on a plate.
