 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      sheet         (1/2 pound) frozen puff pastry -- thawed
    1                    Granny Smith apple
    2      tablespoons   sugar
      1/4  teaspoon      cinnamon
    1      tablespoon    cold unsalted butter -- cut into bits
    2      tablespoons   apricot jam -- heated and strained
                         Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream
                         as an accompaniment
 
 
 Roll out the pastry 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured surface, 
 cut out two 7-inch rounds, and transfer them to a baking sheet. 
 Peel, halve lengthwise, and core the apple, slice it thin crosswise, 
 and arrange the slices, overlapping them slightly, on the pastry 
 rounds. In a small bowl stir together the sugar and the cinnamon, 
 sprinkle the mixture evenly over the apples, and dot the tarts with 
 the 
 butter. Bake the tarts in the middle of a pre-heated 400 degree oven 
 for 25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown. Transfer the 
 tarts
 to a rack, brush them with the jam and serve them warm with ice 
 cream.
