|(Interview) ABC's The Chew, Chef Jason Roberts is back in the kitchen with a very special Apple dessert|
A recipe of Jason Roberts
Quick, simple, affordable and super delicious. I have yet to hear anyone turn down a second piece. This classical French dessert will turn any modern day feast into the perfect meal.
- 4 - 5 apples (preferably golden delicious)
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup super-fine sugar
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (defrosted)
- 1 egg (beaten)
- Place the rim of a medium sized fry pan (approximately 9" - 10") over the puff pastry and cut to fit, then place pastry back into refrigerator till needed.
- Peel apples, halve lengthways and cut each into 6 thick wedges. Remove seeds.
- Melt butter in the frying pan. Stir in sugar and arrange the apples neatly to fill the bottom of the pan. Cook for approximately 10-15 minutes or until the apples have caramelized and the juices have become thick, dark and syrupy. (Cooking time will vary, depending on the moisture content of the apples)
- Place the pastry over the apples and tuck the excess down the sides. Pierce the center of the pastry with 2 knife holes then brush with beaten egg
- Place the pan in a pre-heated 425° F. oven, and cook for 20 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden. Allow to cool slightly, then invert onto a serving plate. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
