The Freshman Cook: Brie and Apple Tarts~A Pinterest Inspired Treat!

It’s time for another Pinterest Inspired Blog Hop, and today’s  inspired post comes from a blog called Bloghungry. These brie and apple tarts are the perfect fall treat. I made a few changes to the original recipe, but the sweetness of the soft, warm, spiced apple and the subtle brie taste are still there. These are good. And easy to make! They are perfect for breakfast, a snack, and even dessert!

Brie and Apple Tarts

(makes 4 tarts)

1 sheet of thawed Puff Pastry

1 Granny Smith Apple

1/2 tablespoon Brown Sugar

1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 tablespoon Butter

1/4 of a Brie Cheese round

1 Egg

Flour ( for rolling)



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Lightly flour your working surface.

Unfold your puff pasty and roll in out into a 10″X10″ 


Cut the sheet in to quarters.

Peel, core and slice your apple.

Cut your brie into thin slices.

Place a slice of brie, and 3-4 slices of apple

in the middle of each square.

Combine your cinnamon and brown sugar in a bowl.

Set aside.

Make an egg wash by beating an egg with a fork.

Set aside.

Evenly divide the cinnamon and brown sugar mix 

between the squares. Divide the butter between the 

squares also.

Use your egg wash, and brush the border of the pastry square.

Fold 2 opposite corners together to the center, 

brush them with the egg wash, and overlap them so 

they stick together. Brush the top wih egg wash.

Place the tarts on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper.

Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Once tarts are out of the oven, drizzle them with melted caramel.

Then drizzle with melted chocolate.


What a great recipe! Here’s where we are partying:
