  • 1 pastry sheet from a 375g/13oz pack puff pastry
  • 100g/4oz white marzipan, chilled and coarsely grated
  • 4 Braeburn apples, quartered, cored and sliced
  • 50g/2oz butter juice of 1 large lemon
  • 25g/1oz Demerara sugar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon mixed spice


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6. Grease the bottoms of
    six 7.5cm/3in individual tartlet tins.
  • Roll out the pastry sheet more thinly. Stamp out six 12.5cm/5in rounds
    of pastry using a pastry cutter. Use to line the tins, and prick the bases
    twice with a fork. Chill for 10 minutes.
  • Line the pastry with foil and baking beans. Bake blind for 10 minutes.
    Remove the foil and beans, sprinkle in the marzipan and cook for a
    further 5 minutes.
  • Quarter, core and slice the apples. Heat the butter in a large non-stick
    frying pan. Add the apples, lemon juice, sugar and mixed spice, and
    cook over a high heat for 5 minutes, turning as needed, until most of the
    lemon juice has evaporated and the apples are just tender.
  • Pile the apple mixture into the warm pastry cases, then put back in the
    oven for 2–3 minutes. Serve the tartlets warm with crème fraîche.
