salted caramel apple puff pastries.


Say it with salted caramel this Valentine's Day. Treat loved ones to this indulgent puff pastry dessert featuring caramelised Pink Lady® apples as the star of the show. Whether for a breakfast in bed with a hot cup of tea, a decadent dessert to finish a romantic dinner or a sumptuous sweet for a girls' night in, this recipe ticks all the boxes. Buttery puff pastry, sweet apples and dusting of icing sugar, finish with thick double cream to contrast against the deliciously crunchy textures. 

Plus, it's super quick to put together. What's not to fall in love with?



Shopping list. 
(Makes two)

♥ Ready rolled puff pastry sheet, at room temperature 
♥ Two Pink Lady® apples, sliced into segments
♥ Salted caramel sauce
♥ A handful of flaked almonds
♥ Extra sea salt, optional
♥ Icing sugar

♥ Double cream

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C.

Step one. Slice your puff pastry into even rectangles. You could of course make one large pastry or even smaller ones than I did, just think about how your heart-shaped apples will fit into the size.

Step two. Turn up the edges of the puff pastry to create an edge.

Step three. Add your apple slices to the pastry. 

Top tip: Use a round cutter to round off the edges of your apple hearts.


Step four. Drizzle with salted caramel and almonds. 

Step five. Bake for 18-20 minutes until cooked, flaky and golden.



To finish, dust with icing sugar and serve on your prettiest plate! Scatter with extra sea salt if you particularly love the salty/sweet flavour clash.



Have you got plans for a Valentine's dessert this year? What is your signature dessert when cooking for someone special?

    I own a cake shop so Valentines is one of my busiest times so this year I'll be finishing work, donning my PJs, ordering a massive take away and binging on Hannibal with my fiancée. Bliss!!
