2 lbs apples (I used a mix of Granny Smith + Envy varieties)
1/2 C cultured butter
1 C honey
1 T vanilla bean paste
1 T ground cinnamon
1 sheet store-bought puff pastry, room temperature
1/2 t sea salt flakes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Thinly slice the apples.
Line a lightly greased pie plate or shallow baker with the puff pastry. Trim the edges, if needed.
Add layers of the thinly sliced apples to the baker, distributing the slices evenly.
In a small saucepan, add the butter, honey, vanilla bean paste and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and cook, whisking, 5 - 7 minutes until it reduces and thickens.
Pour the honey mixture over the apple slices. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until the apples are bubbly and the pastry is golden. If the pastry edges begin to brown too much, cover them with strips of aluminum foil.
Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and serve warm.
