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



3 medium, Braeburn, peeled, cored and cut into 8 wedges each

Low Fat Spread

30 g

Light Brown Sugar

25 g

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Ready rolled light puff pastry sheet

175 g

Half Fat Crème Frâiche

150 g


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Put the apples and 1 tablespoon water in a large lidded frying pan and set over a low heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, swirling the pan occasionally, until the apples are tender.
  2. Drain any excess liquid from the pan, then add the low-fat spread and brown sugar. Swirl the pan and increase the heat, simmering for 5 minutes until the apples are coated in the caramelised sugar. Mist a 20cm circular pie dish with cooking spray and arrange the apples over the base.
  3. Cut the pastry into a circle large enough to cover the top of the pie dish, discarding the trimmings. Place the pastry circle over the apples, tucking the edges inside the dish. Make a small cut in the top to release any steam when baking.
  4. Put the tin on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and deeply golden. Leave to stand for 5 minutes, then invert the tart onto a heatproof serving plate and serve with the crème fraîche.
