A classic wintery dessert, this Honeycrisp Apple Tarte Tatin is a beauty. We flooded these honeycrisp apples with a caramel sauce and topped them with lightly whipped cream. I love how the whole apples look finished. The colors are so pretty, and it makes this dessert a gorgeous presentation for everybody who is about to partake. Make sure you flip it over on something with a rim because it does tend to get a little saucy. :) Enjoy!

Honeycrisp Apple Tarte Tatin with Soft Whipped Cream

Servings: 8


caramel sauce

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ small lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


  • 8 small Honeycrisp apples, sliced in half lengthwise and cored
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed and sharp corners rounded out with a knife
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Place all caramel sauce ingredients, except butter, into a saucepan (with tall sides) and bring to a boil to dissolve sugar, over medium-high heat.
  • Once sugar has dissolved continue to boil until a deep amber color forms, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove melted sugar from heat and begin adding butter, a few pieces at a time, swirling the pan to incorporate (the mixture with bubble up quite a bit).
  • Once all the butter has been added and mixture is smooth, pour sauce into a 9” cake pan.
  • Arrange apple halves to fit snuggly over the sauce, cut-side up.
  • Place puff pastry over pan and tuck sides around the edge of the pan.
  • Place cake pan onto a baking sheet and transfer to oven.
  • Bake tarte tatin for 20 to 25 minutes or until puff pastry has nicely browned.
  • Remove from oven and allow tarte tatin to sit for 5 minutes.
  • Place an inverted platter over the cake pan and very carefully flip tarte tatin over and remove the cake pan (you can knock the bottom of the cake pan a few times, once it’s flipped, to help release any apples that may have stuck).
  • While tarte tatin cools make soft whipped cream. Place cream and sugar into a mixing bowl and whisk together until very soft peaks form.
  • Slice tarte tatin and top with soft whipped cream. Serve.
