Though this update of the classic Tarte Tatin is more of a dessert-and-cheese course, it would be great served as an appetizer as well. If you can’t find Fuji apples, use another sweet apple variety instead, such as Gala or Braeburn.

12/2014 - I made these as a 1st course for our Christmas dinner - EXCELLENT! My cookie cutter was probably 3-3 1/2-inches and I didn't have to roll the pastry much for 7 rounds. They really puff up but sort of get smaller in diameter but in the end didn't matter. I made the puff a day ahead and stored in a ziplock. We didn't have an oven available to I sauteed the apples until caramelized which worked great. The cheese you get in packages is too thin so did too to get the 1/8-inch and it needed it. I served with enough greens to make this a salad/first course and everyone love it. pretty simple too. did not serve with the walnuts but it would have been a good addition.
This wasn't terrible, but it was just puffed pastry and baked apples with a slice of cheese. Not anywhere close to the complexity of creation and flavors that the Classic version is. Read my full review at: http://themomchef.blogspot.com/2010/11/upside-down-apple-cheddar-tarts-with.html
