Cut puff pastry in half (if you prefer less puff part you could cut in three parts, which is what I did) and place on the baking pan. Chill as you prepare the filling.
Thinly slice the apple. I use a mandolin slicer to get nice thin cuts, but please BE VERY CAREFUL when using a mandolin and always use the food guard. Otherwise you can take off the top of your finger (and I have!).
Mix the apples, lemon juice, cinnamon sugar, and salt together in a bowl and let it sit for a few minutes.
Roll out almond paste to 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness, or just break into pieces.
Working quickly, place the almond paste pieces on the puff pastry sheet to about 1-inch from the edges.
Arrange the apple slices along the puff pastry in a line stacking the apples as you go. Brush edges with egg wash, and fold over to create a frame. Brush the top of the frame with more egg wash.
Bake the tarts for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove the pan from oven and transfer to wire rack to cool.
Put tarts on a cutting board and drizzle caramel sauce on top. Slice with a pizza roller, or sharp knife into 1-inch strips. Serve and enjoy!
I make my own cinnamon sugar using 1:3 parts cinnamon to 3 parts sugar. You can make yours to tastePuff Pastry can be super easy, yet super frustrating, to use. It warms very quickly, and warm = stretchy. Work as quickly as you can to get the tarts into the oven.Put the cold puff pastry on baking sheets before topping them – trying to move them after topping them just makes a mess.Brush the pastry edges with egg wash for extra shine. Not strictly necessary, but still…If you want, you can sprinkle a bit of coarse sugar for extra crunch on the tarts before baking.Remember, no matter how it looks, these tarts will taste great!
