Ready-made pastry makes this French-inspired tart simplicity itself. The tangy crème fraiîche is the perfect accompaniment to the caramelised apples.

Ingredients

Red apple, peeled

3 medium, cored, cut into 8 wedges each

Reduced fat oil spread

30 g

Brown sugar

2 tbs

Reduced-fat puff pastry

140 g, (buy 175g)

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

½ cup(s), (120g)

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place apples and 1 tablespoon of water in a large frying pan and heat over low heat. Cover and simmer, swirling pan occasionally for 10 minutes or until apples are tender.
  2. Drain excess liquid from pan. Add spread and brown sugar. Swirl pan and increase heat to medium for 5 minutes or until apples are coated in caramelised sugar. Lightly spray a 20cm round pie dish with oil and arrange apples over base.
  3. Cut pastry into a circle large enough to cover top of pie dish, discarding trimmings. Place pastry circle over apples, tucking edges inside dish. Make a small cut in the top to release any steam when baking.
  4. Place dish on a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes or until pastry is puffed and deeply golden. Stand for 5 minutes, then invert tart onto a serving plate. Serve with yoghurt.
