Easy Apple Puff Pastry Tarts

The recipe for the apple puff pastry tarts are below.  Link to saffron caramel sauce is here.

This recipe adds warmth to apple pastry with cardamom and depth to the usual caramel topping with some saffron.  IMO saffron is totally underutilized so it is fun to add to new recipes.

You only need a handful of ingredients most of which you likely have on hand.  I do use ready made puff pastry sheets which you may need to grab from the store.

These apple puff pastry tarts taste great on their own. Also fun to serve with a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
