Yippee! This week’s recipe was chosen by my good buddy, Jessica, of My Baking Heart! Great pick, Jess!! These were sooooooooo easy! They literally took me 5 minutes to put together! Now that’s a recipe I can get behind!! All you need is some frozen puff pastry, an apple, brown sugar and butter…that’s it! And you get a gorgeous, flaky, buttery tartlet….it’s like a little apple birds nest! So cute!

I am SO looking forward to making these again with other kinds of fruits – peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots….oh man, I’m getting all excited just thinking about it! My mother and nephew are coming for a few days this week and I’m thinking these are going to be the perfect little treat to welcome them!

I made two tarlets and sneaked a few bites as I was photographing them….a “few bites” quickly turned into me standing in the kitchen scarfing the remaining tartlet with my hands, with juice running all down my wrists. Talk about food guilt. I think Izzy and I will go on a nice, long walk tonight.

Go visit my good buddy Jessica’s blog and get the recipe from her- these would be perfect for company – they look like they were so much trouble, but really they’re embarassingly easy! Perfect!



  1. Those are beautiful! I recommend you try peaches next…they were so good!

  2. That looks so yummy and you’re right, it does look like a bird’s nest. I haven’t made mine yet but I’m planning on having one for dessert this evening.

  7. Your little tartlet is picture perfect! I love how you described them like little birds nests, how sweet. We loved these too, what a great (although food guilt inducing) recipe 🙂

  9. Your tartlet looks fantastic! I ate my entire tartlet too and then proceeded to feel quite guilty 🙂

  11. bird nests — what a perfect description! I can definitely recommend peaches and cherries as a sub for the apples— they were delicious.
