Easier-Than-Apple-Pie Tarts

½ pkg. (1 sheet) frozen puff pastry
2 tart baking apples (such as Honeycrisp), peeled, cored and sliced ¼" thick
3 tbsp. Kowalski's Unsalted Butter, melted
4 tbsp. sugar
- ice cream, for serving (optional)
- Kowalski's Classic Caramel Sauce, warmed, for serving (optional)
  1. Let pastry sheet sit at room temperature for about 30 min. until it can just be unfolded without breaking (the pastry should stay as cold as possible); unfold and cut into 4 pieces.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°.
  3. Place pieces of pastry at least 1" apart on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Place overlapping slices of apple on the pastry, leaving a ½" border around the edges; brush apples evenly with butter.
  5. Sprinkle each piece of pastry with 1 tbsp. of sugar.
  6. Bake in a preheated 400° oven until pastry is dark golden-brown on the edges and apples are tender and starting to darken (about 40 min.).
  7. Remove from oven; cool on pan for 2 min.
  8. Move tarts to a wire rack; cool for at least 10 min.
  9. Serve with ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce to taste
