I used Trader Joe's All-Butter Puff Pastry (two sheets for only $5!). I posted a photo of the box here. Puff Pastry is simply one of the best butter delivery devices.

Still going strong on my fuyu persimmon kick, I used my mandolin to cut thin slices.

I also cored a granny smith apple (seriously, I love my newly purchased apple corer - only a few bucks at the local restaurant supply store and it is sooo great). I placed a few apple slices into the center of the perfectly cored apple to make a little apple rose.

I put a touch of lemon juice on the apples, and brushed the fruit with a little melted butter and sugar.

The bottoms got a little burned so I peeled one off, and scrapped the others off (like burnt toast). I probably caused this because I was very liberal and haphazard in my "sprinkling sugar on top" technique and the poor sugar crystals caramelized in the 400 degree oven.

I baked them for about 30 minutes...I think. Oh my, I seriously can't remember now. It was early morning...(and doesn't that explain it?)

Cut into little pieces, these are delightful little butter snack, I mean, FRUIT snacks.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Happy Birthday Brian P and Dave A!

These tarts look amazing. I never have tasted persimmom - this sounds like a good recipe to try.

You know I can't help but comment on persimmon-related matters. Gorgeous, and gives me an idea of what to do with mine. And yes, you really can freeze butter - even my freezer-burn-prone freezer keeps it beautifully for months. Happy Thanksgiving!

What a beautiful way to use persimmons! My fiance just came home with a bag of 20 (this after the bag of 14 we polished off from last night). I think I may have a medical addiction. And the fruit stand guy definitely thinks we're crazy.

Gorgeous tarts! I am jealous of your never-ending stream of persimmons. I have a few on my counter refusing to ripen, so I may have to bake with them instead.

haha.. butter snacks! Those look so pretty, I really need a mandolin. Actually, it would be nice if I had every kitchen gadget made.

Yum - these look so good! I wish we had a TJs in Lexington. I love apple tarts and I bet the persimmon tarts were wonderful.

Happy Thanksgiving FL!

Oooh! I admit I just want to steal the persimmon slices and eat them before you even get a chance to bake them into a tart. My persimmon obsession is... obsessive. I love Trader JOe's puff pastry!
