Individual Flans Recipes

Ingredients :

puff pastry, homemade or frozen packaged

2 large tart apples (Granny Smiths, for example)

2 tbsp lemon or lime juice

1/4 tsp ground cloves or cinnamon

2 tbsp light brown sugar

4 tbsp apricot preserves

1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped - optional

2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Method :

Roll out the puff pastry to an 11 inch square. (If using frozen pastry, thaw for 20 minutes or more before rolling out) Divide into four 5 1/2 inch circles, cutting around the edges with a sharp knife. Put the pastry on a large ungreased baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425F. Peel and core the apples and cut them into 1/8 inch slices. Toss with lemon or lime juice, cloves or cinnamon, and brown sugar. Cover each circle of pastry with 1 tablespoon of the apricot preserves. Then place a row of apple slices on top of each pastry circle, leaving a 3/4 inch border on all sides. Place a slice at the top and bottom of each pastry circle and invert the last slice in the row to form a complete circle of apple slices on top of the pastry. Turn up the pastry edges to form a shell. Brush with the melted butter. To prevent scorching, place the baking sheet of pastries on a second baking sheet. Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the crusts are crisp and golden. Cool on wire racks before serving.

The crunch of well toasted puff pastry contrasts nicely with lightly sugared baked apple slices.
