2 tablespoons walnut pieces

1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

1 large egg

2 tablespoons honey

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts on a baking sheet and toast until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool completely and finely chop.

2. Turn heat to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unfold thawed puff pastry sheet on top of paper. Prick all over with a fork. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.

3. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over pastry. Arrange apples, overlapping them slightly, on top of pastry, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border of pastry all around. Brush edges of pastry with egg.

4. Bake until crust is golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.

5. Place honey in a small, microwave-safe bowl and microwave for a few seconds to warm (do not let honey come to a boil). Brush apples with honey as soon as tart comes out of oven. Sprinkle with walnuts. Let cool completely on baking sheet, slice and serve.

Makes 6 servings.
