What other fruits can you use for baked puff pastry?
Make sure you choose firm fruits like stone fruits. I would stay away from soft foods like berries which can turn mushy while baking.
Upside Down Puff Pastry Recipe
- 2 apples, sliced
- 1 package frozen puff pastry
- 1 egg
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Make sure they are rimmed or your honey can seep out and drip over your oven!1. Let your frozen puff pastry thaw for several hours in the refrigerator before unrolling. 2. Unroll puff pastry sheets (there will be two). Use a rolling pin to sightly roll out each sheet (this helps get rid of the creases when you unroll them).3. Cut each sheet into 6 rectangles. You will have 12 total. 4. Drizzle 2-3 teaspsons of honey on the parchment paper equallly spaced apart 6 times. Spread to create a thin layer.5. Arrange 4-5 fruit slices in a single layer on top of the honey, ensuring that they are evenly distributed.6. Drizzle more honey on top of the fruit, about 2 tsp is fine, making sure to cover the fruit. 7. Place the puff pastry rectangle on top of the fruit and honey layer, gently pressing down to seal the edges.8. Brush the puff pastry with a thin layer of egg wash (one egg beaten with a tablespoon of water) ensuring even coverage. Repeat this process with all the pastry squares you have. 9. Bake one baking sheet at at ime for 15-20 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden brown. Allow the tart to cool for a few minutes, then carefully flip it upside down onto a serving plate, revealing the beautifully caramelized fruit.
