How to Make It

Step 1

Thaw the pastry shells at room temperature for 40 minutes. Heat the oven to 375°F.  Stir the sugar, cinnamon and ginger in a small bowl.

Step 2

Roll each pastry shell into a 5-inch circle on a lightly floured surface.  Place the pastry circles onto 2 baking sheets. Arrange about 2/3 cup apple slices on each pastry circle, overlapping the slices. Sprinkle each with about 1 tablespoon sugar mixture.

Step 3

Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Drizzle with the caramel topping, if desired.  Serve the pastries with the ice cream.

    Apple or Pear Fruit Tarts

    This was so easy and super yummy. I will definitely make it again and experiment with other fruits. I also think it would be a nice accompaniment for a brunch.

    I make this all the time! This has become the dessert everyone asks me to bring. My friends, family and kids all love this. Serve it warm with a little ice cream or serve it cold for the kids at breakfast. It's soooooooo good!
