Preparation time: 20 minutes
Oven temperature: 200°C
Baking time: 18 – 20 minutes
1 Preheat the oven. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the sugar and water and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the apple rounds and fry for about 3 minutes.
2 Place an apple round and a little of the syrup in the bases of six tartlet tins.
3 Roll out the puff pastry on a floured working surface and cut out six pastry rounds large enough to cover the tartlet tins. Place a pastry round on top of each apple round and press it in lightly around the edges of the tartlet tins. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 18 – 20 minutes or until golden brown and puffed up.
4 To serve Turn the tartlets out and serve them with cream.
