Serves 6

Fun, edible mummy eyes peer through the pastry strips of this fancifully festive Halloween party tart, made with your favorite flavors of the season. Fresh-sliced Granny Smith apples combine with cinnamon, sugar, allspice and Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider to make this a devilishly delicious dessert!


  1. Thaw puff pastry by leaving it on the counter for 30 minutes.
  2. While the puff pastry thaws, add butter to a large saucepan over medium-high. Once melted, add apples and Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together allspice, cinnamon, salt, and ½ cup sugar. Sprinkle the mixture over the apples.
  4. Lower heat to medium-low and cook until apples begin to soften, about 3 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle in the flour and cornstarch, cooking for another 5 minutes, until the sauce is thickened.
  6. Remove apples from the pan and cool completely in a bowl.
  7. Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
  8. Roll out ⅔ of the dough into a 14-inch by 5-inch rectangle. Reserve remaining dough.
  9. Use the rolled-out dough to fill the bottom and sides of a rectangular tart pan. Add in the cooled apple filling.
  10. Roll out remaining dough and cut into strips. Cover the top of the tart, randomly crossing the strips and trimming the edges. Brush the top with beaten egg.
  11. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden and puff pastry is cooked through.
  12. Apple Mummy Tart

  13. Remove from the oven and cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Top with candy eyes to complete the mummy look. Serve and enjoy!
