Toffee Apple Tartlets…


So for one of Shane’s birthdays I cooked him a lovely 3 course meal which included more than 1 dessert because I just couldn’t decide what to make and these made a great little addition to what I made.

You can use any fruit you like in these but we chose apple and toffee sauce but peaches or pears too would be equally as nice.


Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…

  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
  • I always use an apple corer, prevents waste by chopping.
  • A nice sharp peeler, which not only gets used for peeling but for doing thin slices of vegetables for stir fries etc so it has multiple uses.
  • A pastry brush for glazing the pastry.
  • Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
  • Baking trays, we have separate ones for cake items and others for things like veg and meat etc so we have more than one set floating around in our house.
