Spiced Apple Tarte Tatin
This easy, French-style upside-down apple tart relies on frozen puff pastry. The spice flavor comes from Chinese five-spice powder, a widely available blend with flavors of clove, black pepper and star anise.
If you can find it, all-butter puff pastry is worth the investment -- you'll really taste the difference, and it's a much "cleaner" product. Look for it at specialty supermarkets like Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. That said, this recipe will work great with traditional puff pastry.
