Apple Tart with Tahini Caramel

While you may have encountered tahini, aka sesame paste, mostly in savory dishes, its nuttiness and toasty flavor are also outstanding in desserts like this fruit tart.

> 3 Granny Smith apples (about 1¼ lbs)
> 1/2 cup sugar
> 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
> 1 tbsp vanilla extract
> 1 (17.3 oz) pkg frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
> 1/4 cup apple jelly
> 1/2 cup caramel dessert sauce
> 2 tbsp tahini


Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel, core, and cut the apples into very thin slices. In a large bowl, toss apples with the sugar, cinnamon, and extract.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Unfold the puff pastry sheets and place snugly on baking sheet, gently pressing the edges together along longer sides to make 1 large sheet.
Arrange apples in rows on puff pastry, leaving a ½-inch border of pastry on all sides. Bake 30–35 min., until apples are tender and tart is golden brown.
Microwave the jelly until runny. Brush jelly over apples. In a medium bowl, whisk the caramel sauce and tahini until smooth. Drizzle tahini caramel sauce over the tart before serving.


Top with a pinch of flaky sea salt, like Maldon.
