Chef Meg's Mini Apple Tarts



Introduction

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.

This recipe only costs about $3.50 to make--but you save money by buying sheets of phyllo dough and making your own tart shells (see directions for more information).

Ingredients

    12 phyllo dough tart shells
    2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced
    1/2 lemon, juiced
    1 T butter, unsalted
    2 T brown sugar
    4 T caramel ice cream topping
    4 T whipped cream (optional--nutrition info NOT included)


Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place tart shells on a baking tray. Combine lemon juice and apples in a mixing bowl. In a cast iron or heavy skillet, heat the butter until frothy. Add brown sugar and cook until dark in color; about 1-2 minutes. Add apples and toss. Transfer apples to the tart shells. Bake 6-7 minutes. Allow to cool slightly; top with sauce and whipped cream (optional--nutrition info NOT included).

To make your own tart shells: Spray 12 mini muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Remove phyllo dough from packaging. Slice into 1 inch strips then cut each strip into 2 inch segments. Using 3 layers at a time, fill the cups, spraying cooking spray between each layer. Repeat process three times.

Serving Size: one filled shell with 1 teaspoon caramel sauce.
