Viral Thousand Layer Apple Tart

Course Dessert
Servings 1


  • 1 large honeycrisp apple
  • 3-4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Let’s get baking! Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Start by coring the apple and slicing it super thin—I used a mandolin for this.
  • Next, melt the butter and mix in the dark brown sugar and cinnamon until well combined.
  • Coat each apple slice in the buttery mixture and layer them snugly in a greased ramekin. Make sure to drain any excess liquid from the ramekin.
  • Keep layering those apple slices until your ramekin is filled to the brim!
  • Pop it in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Once done, remove the ramekin from the oven and discard any excess liquid.
  • Now, it’s time to add the puff pastry! Place a piece of puff pastry on top of the apples, brush it with oil or egg wash, and bake for another 20 minutes until beautifully golden.
  • And voilà! Your delightful apple puff pastry dessert is ready to be enjoyed. Dive in and savor every delicious bite!
