Thanks God it’s Friday already! It’s going to be my first proper weekend in a while, because we’re finally done with grape harvest (woo!), enter tons of homework instead. At least homework isn’t that painful. Although maths are.
I wish I had no homework and I could go to the school with the only purpose of learning. I love learning, I hate studying… In my opinion, there’s no point in studying something you don’t truly enjoy learning. It’s going to be worthless, because I think you’ll forget it once you’ve taken your exams, but that’s my point of view.
If only there were no exams, I:
a) Would attend to classes happier because there’s no pressure to pass all the exams, so I’d be able to enjoy every minute and therefore, to learn more. Like, if the pressure of getting good grades didn’t exist, I think it’d be able to even like maths.
b) Would have more time to make homemade puff pastry (aka the best thing ever)… I don’t like storebought at all, but being as busy as I am these days, I have no time to get my self into business. So storebought puff pastry it is this time; it’s not quite as awesome as homemade, but boy, these tarts are amazingly delicious!
Have you noticed how I cannot write a single post in which I don’t complain about something? I’m so so whiny it’s not even funny.
But let’s talk tarts here. Because everybody loves tarts and there’s nothing to complain about them.
Not a single thing actually, because they’re tasty, buttery, not cloyingly sweet (seriously, what’s up with storebought apple baked goods? They’re so sweet they make my teeth hurt!), easy and super quick to make assuming you go the storebought route for the puff pastry, but please use homemade caramel, it’s even quicker than going to the store and it really makes a difference! You should totally make them if you’re looking for a way to use up some apples, or, mind you, caramel sauce. I made a huge batch of it last time and I’m still trying to come up with different ways to use it up. Any ideas? These are a perfect fall dessert. A busy student approved fall dessert, because these won’t take you much time to put together so you can go back to study soon (how nice does that sound? terrible, I know)… unless, of course, you prefer to reach for another tart and forget your homework. Textbooks can wait, apple tarts with warm salted caramel sauce can’t.
In order to make these, you’ll need a puff pastry sheet, some vanilla custard (I highly recommend using this recipe, but please don’t judge the pictures, that was one of the first recipes I posted and they are terrible!), apples and salted caramel sauce. As simple as that!
Enjoy your weekend!
