Puff Pastry Apple Tartlet

I don’t know if you guys ever use puff pastry, but you should consider it.  It’s something that we try to keep in our freezer at all times.  It is probably best for making super fast desserts, but it can also make fancy appetizers super fast.  This recipe was created in a flash with a handful of ingredients.  We garnished ours with a little powdered sugar and a touch of mint from our garden.  Give this recipe a try, and odds are good that you’ll start keeping puff pastry on hand.
