Merry Christmas this Holiday recipe will be a favorite for years to come! Apple Tarte Tatin is a traditional French pastry dish, that was created accident but ended up being a well loved dessert!
Nutritionist Frances Largeman-Roth explains how to make the traditional French dessert Apple Tarte Tatin. While the name may sound fancy, this is an easy-to-make recipe that is both sweet and satisfying after a hearty Christmas Dinner.
First you need to coat your pan with butter. Then take one sheet of puff pastry and roll out to the size of your pan. Place back into fridge so it doesn’t melt.
Next, place brown sugar in pan, the brown sugar will melt and caramelize once placed in the oven. Take thinly sliced apple slices and place around the pan creating two layers. Turn the pan on and let sit for 20 minutes on the stove.
Once cooked for 20 minutes place in oven for another 20 minutes. Once apples are fully cooked take out of oven. Now all you have to do is take the crust and place on the tart. Put the pan back in the oven and cook for another 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Once cool flip your pan over onto a plate. Inverting the tart can be tricky so be careful to make sure it comes out in one piece.
Apples are important to incorporate into your diet, they are stuffed with cancer and disease fighting antioxidants. In a time of fast food and junk food being the go to snack, tasty recipes for fruits can help get everyone back in shape!

00:02.350 --> 00:04.611
00:04.611 --> 00:06.150
00:06.150 --> 00:10.010
I'm gonna make a tartaten today, which is
a traditional French dessert.
00:10.010 --> 00:14.130
It sounds fancy, but it's actually really,
really easy to make.
00:14.130 --> 00:15.190
So let's get started.
00:15.190 --> 00:16.880
First we're gonna coat our pan.
00:16.880 --> 00:21.780
You just need something that you can use
on the stove top, and also in the oven.
00:21.780 --> 00:24.930
So we're just going to do a really, really
light coat, and
00:24.930 --> 00:28.460
again, my pan's not even on yet, of butter
00:28.460 --> 00:34.580
that when we flip our tart over, it
releases out of the pan very, very easily.
00:34.580 --> 00:38.560
Then I have one sheet of puffed pastry,
00:38.560 --> 00:41.380
you're gonna to roll that out to the size
of your pan.
00:41.380 --> 00:44.500
And you wanna roll between two sheets of
00:46.850 --> 00:48.610
It does not have to be perfectly round.
00:48.610 --> 00:52.630
This is actually gonna go back into the
fridge while you start to make your tart.
00:52.630 --> 00:58.069
And so you can actually kind of shape it a
little bit once you put the dough on top.
00:59.410 --> 01:00.995
I think that'll do it.
01:00.995 --> 01:04.899
And into the fridge so it doesn't melt on
01:04.899 --> 01:07.640
Okay, now we're ready to put the brown
sugar in the pan.
01:07.640 --> 01:10.780
We're only using a quarter cup of brown
01:10.780 --> 01:14.710
whereas most pies can have between three
quarters and a cup.
01:14.710 --> 01:18.229
And what this is, this is going to do is
it's going to just melt and caramelize.
01:19.370 --> 01:21.710
Okay, so this is the fun part for me.
01:21.710 --> 01:24.900
I like this because you get to be a little
01:24.900 --> 01:28.840
Your apples should be sliced thinly and
01:28.840 --> 01:31.040
it, you know, you don't have to use a
01:31.040 --> 01:32.585
You can just cut them by hand.
01:32.585 --> 01:37.000
We go around the pan once, and then we do
another layer on top.
01:38.400 --> 01:39.800
You can also do this with pears.
01:39.800 --> 01:41.350
It's really wonderful with pears too.
01:42.370 --> 01:45.525
Our two layers of apples are in and I'm
gonna turn the pan on.
01:45.525 --> 01:48.040
[SOUND] Okay, this is gonna cook for
01:48.040 --> 01:53.440
20 minutes, you don't need to touch it,
you don't need to do a thing.
01:53.440 --> 01:55.832
Come back in 20 minutes and we're gonna
put it in the oven.
01:55.832 --> 01:57.094
01:57.094 --> 01:58.199
01:58.199 --> 02:02.060
Okay, so our apples have been cooking on
the stove for 20 minutes.
02:02.060 --> 02:04.433
And the the brown sugar has caramelized
02:04.433 --> 02:08.416
you'll be able to see that your apples are
starting to became a little bit soft.
02:08.416 --> 02:10.699
Now, they're gonna go in the oven for 20
02:10.699 --> 02:14.049
[NOISE] Our apples have baked for 20
02:14.049 --> 02:17.519
Now I'm gonna get the crust, put it on
top, and it's gonna go back in the oven.
02:19.140 --> 02:21.050
This is really why you need to keep it in
the fridge, so
02:21.050 --> 02:25.460
that when you peel it off, it actually
comes off in one piece.
02:25.460 --> 02:32.880
Okay, so, be careful cuz your pan is very
hot, and just lay it in nicely.
02:32.880 --> 02:36.140
You can kind of tuck it, tuck in those
02:36.140 --> 02:38.152
02:38.152 --> 02:44.573
[SOUND] Our tartaten is done.
02:44.573 --> 02:48.320
It's out of the oven and we've let it cool
for 20 minutes.
02:48.320 --> 02:51.230
Now we're going to invert it and you need
to have a plate or
02:51.230 --> 02:55.410
a platter that is at least as big as the
circumference of the pan.
02:55.410 --> 02:55.949
So here we go.
02:55.949 --> 02:59.042
02:59.042 --> 03:03.528
[NOISE] Okay, and
03:03.528 --> 03:10.904
we got it out in once piece.
03:10.904 --> 03:12.340
03:12.340 --> 03:14.900
Our apple has completely caramelized.
03:14.900 --> 03:16.282
Our puffed pastry is crispy.
03:16.282 --> 03:19.972
I wanna just give a little sprinkle of
03:19.972 --> 03:25.696
powdered sugar to make it look a little
bit more festive.
03:25.696 --> 03:26.443
03:26.443 --> 03:27.659
03:27.659 --> 03:35.956
03:35.956 --> 03:37.813
03:37.813 --> 03:38.623
03:38.623 --> 03:42.059
03:42.059 --> 03:42.954
Let's try it.
03:42.954 --> 03:48.927
03:48.927 --> 03:51.273
03:51.273 --> 03:53.045
03:53.045 --> 03:55.520
You got the flaky crust.
03:55.520 --> 03:58.949
The wonderful kind of chewy caramelized
04:00.080 --> 04:03.719
It's sweet but not too sweet, which makes
me very happy.
04:03.719 --> 04:07.998
