Ingredient Notes For This Honeycrisp-Apple Tart with Caramel:

  • Puff Pastry Sheet – Pro tip: Use the lines in the pastry as a guide to organize the apples. Be sure to also prick the dough with a fork to prevent it from bubbling up during cooking. (If this step is skipped, the dough puffs up and some of the toppings slide off).
  • Apples – Honeycrisp are my absolute favorite and that is what I use here! Feel free to use whatever you like though.
  • Sugar – Feel free to use either cane sugar or coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is unrefined and is the healthier option. However, both work well for this recipe. (These images feature coconut sugar, which I am a huge fan of. And in my opinion, when used, the end result is no different).
  • Caramel Sauce – Don’t skip this step! It adds such a fun element to the dessert. My recipe is shown below.
  • Cook Time – Cook for less time if you desire less of a crunch. If you want more of a crunch cook for longer.
  • Servings – This recipe makes 6 large servings or 12 smaller servings.

This Honeycrisp-Apple Tart with Caramel Sauce is best eaten warm, and can be enjoyed as a breakfast item or a fun dessert. It’s a two-for-one! 😉

  5. Cinnamon Sugar: Sprinkle most of the cinnamon sugar topping all over the puff pastry. 
  6. Apples: Top with the apples in whatever pattern you desire.
  7. Cinnamon Sugar: Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar topping all over the apples. 
  8. Bake: Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed up.

  1. Oh my goodness! This has got to be a winner! It looks absolutely yummy. I can almost smell the fragrance while looking at the photo! (You take such wonderful pictures of your recipes)! Would this be impossible to make at Christmas for 15 people?!?

    1. It is a major winner! It seriously tastes like a lighter version of apple pie, and it’s ridiculously easy to make even for 15 people. I can’t wait for you to try it at Christmas. And thank you Patricia…that makes me feel so great!

  2. Love this dessert – both the taste and that it’s way easier to make than for instance an apple pie.
