Salted Caramel Apple Popped TartMADE BY MEGPIES BAKESHOP IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
This little apple tart from the Big Apple has us saying bye-bye to store-bought American pies. Yes, it's the real deal: tender bits of apple hanging out with sweet caramel and warm cinnamon, baked into the flakiest, butteriest, perfectly salted crust and topped off with caramel icing.
When Meghan Ritchie introduced these retro treats at Brooklyn food market Smorgasburg, they quickly became a hot ticket. They've got such a following they're even listed as one of the Village Voice's top 100 dishes. One bite, and you'll forget Pop Tarts ever existed.
INSTRUCTIONS: We ship these treats frozen and mostly they defrost on the way. Store at room temperature and when you're ready to enjoy, just reheat them in an oven or toaster oven at 250 degrees for five minutes. The pastries stay fresh for over a week, but those west of the Mississippi should eat these within a couple of days of receiving them for the freshest tasting pastries. If you make it more than 24 hours, you deserve some kind of prize.
