After spending precious time making your kids’ dinner or lunch, many of us resort to opening a box of cookies or other such snacks to satisfy our little ones’ sweet cravings. I get it. But most pre-packaged desserts contain stuff we likely don’t want your kids eating on a regular basis, so at weelicious I put a premium on coming up with ideas for super simple desserts for Kenya and his friends that aren’t packed with sugar and are hopefully just as easy for you to make as opening a tin of Sara Lee cake is. I think these apple puff pastry tarts fit the bill. They are delicious and so perfect to make at this time of year.
Many different varieties of apples are all over our farmer’s market this fall and Kenya has been eating them up left and right. I think he eats a tree’s worth of free samples every weekend. The best part about making this recipe is that you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already, so you can have this treat on the table in no time flat! These will be a huge hit with everyone and think of all the money you’ll save not buying Oreos.
