If You Love Puff Pastry Tarts, Bake Them Upside Down
On TikTok, countless users are cooking pastries such as danishes or small tarts face down on a baking sheet. This method makes picture-perfect, evenly-baked tarts in record time.
To try it, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, line a sheet pan with parchment paper, then drizzle or dollop your tart filling onto the pan in evenly-spaced intervals.
Cover each mound of filling with a rectangle of puff pastry. Press down along the edges of the pastry using a fork to create a textured ridge, helping to hold everything in place.
Bake until golden brown, then allow the pastries to cool for a few minutes to let the ingredients set. Carefully remove them from the tray and turn them right side up.
The options for fillings are endless. Try a drizzle of honey and a thinly sliced pear, or use pineapple and maraschino cherries for a pineapple upside-down cake spin.
Try a pizza version with pepperoni, shredded mozzarella cheese, and tomato sauce, or ham or bacon, shredded cheddar, and an uncooked egg that will bake to perfection in the oven.
