Banana Tartes Tatin

Puff pastry is, without a doubt, one of man's best culinary creations. It is deliciously buttery, works equally well for savory and sweet dishes, and keeps in your freezer until you need it! Plus, you can buy high-quality puff pastry at reasonable prices at your supermarket. 
I love puff pastry because it can elevate the simplest of meals. Got leftover rotisserie chicken and vegetables? Make a chicken pot pie with a puff pastry top! Need something to impress the neighbors at your holiday cocktail party? Wrap some brie in puff pastry and throw it in the oven!

Banana Tartes TatinThese banana tartes tatin are as delicious as they are pretty. They are basically sweet, caramelized, bananas sitting on top of crispy puff pastry dough. Don't even think about serving this without a scoop of ice cream on top. 

Banana tarte tatin is the dinner party dessert of my dreams. Easy to make, easy to clean up, and you can bet your guests will be impressed. I mean, come on, just look at how pretty it turns out!
