Grape Tarte Tatin
  • Servings: 8
  • • 10 x 15 inch sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • • 1 1/2 pounds red or black California grapes
  • • 3 tbsp sugar
  • • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • • Pinch of salt
  • • Whipped cream (optional)
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Roll puff pastry until it's 1/8 inch thick. Using a bowl as a template, use the tip of a sharp knife cut out a 10 1/2 inch circle of puff pastry.
  2. 2. Over medium-high heat, melt butter in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, preferably non-stick or cast-iron. Stirring frequently, add grapes and cook until many have burst and are golden in places, about 15 minutes. Stir in the sugar, lemon, and salt and simmer 1 minute longer or until liquid has thickened slightly.
  3. 3. Push grapes into a single layer and cover with puff pastry. Bake until puffed and brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes, then carefully turn out onto a round plate. Serve warm and cut into wedges. Top with whipped cream if desired.
