Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the sugar and water and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the apple rounds and fry for about 3 minutes.

Place an apple round and a little of the syrup in the bases of six tartlet tins.

Roll out the puff pastry on a floured working surface and cut out six pastry rounds large enough to cover the tartlet tins. Place a pastry round on top of each apple round and press it in lightly around the edges of the tartlet tins. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 18 – 20 minutes or until golden brown and puffed up.

To serve:
Turn the tartlets out and serve them with cream.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
