Roll out the puff pastry no more than 10 minutes before apples are done; the pastry needs to stay as cold as possible for maximum puff.

How to Make It

Step 1

Peel and core apples; cut in half lengthwise. Toss together apples and sugar; place in a 12-inch cast-iron or ovenproof skillet.

Step 2

Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, 20 to 30 minutes or until apples soften and start to caramelize.

Step 3

Unfold and stack pastry sheets on top of each other on a lightly floured surface. Roll to a 12-inch square. Place on top of cooked apples, with pastry corners overlapping sides of skillet.

Step 4

Bake at 450° for 10 to 12 minutes or until dark golden brown.

Step 5

Cool on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes. Carefully invert tart onto a serving plate; remove skillet. Cut tart into wedges, and serve with Ol' South Custard.
