How to make French Apple Flan

First of all, lets make the apricot glaze. Put the jam in a small saucepan with water and heat gently until the jam melts. Increse the heat and boil for a minute, remove from the heat and press through a fine sieve. Keep warm until it is needed.

Take the puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface and roll out a little bit. Using a 14cm (5 1/2 inch) plate as a guide, cut out four rounds and put each one on a baking sheet. Place a slightly smaller plate on each pastry and score around the edge to form a 1cm (1/2 inch) border. Prick the centers with a fork and chill for 30 minutes.

Arrange the apple slices in a circle over the pastry and scatter over the sugar. Grate over the butter and bake in a preheated oven, 220 deg C (425 deg F), for 20 to 25 minutes or until the pastry and apples are golden.

Reheat the apricot glaze until it is warm and brush over each tart while still warm.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.
