Warm Apple And Roquefort Tart

This delightful Apple and Roquefort Tart is exceptionally good on a cold winter's day with a glass of fine wine!

2 apples, peeled, cored and quartered
Sugar, as needed for caramelization, about 1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon of butter
A Tablespoon of prepared cinnamon sugar, according to taste
French Roquefort cheese only!!
Puff pastry sheet + egg wash (an egg whisked with a little water for brushing the pastry)
Grapes for garnish (optional)

1. Prepare apples carefully and caramelize in a skillet that has only sugar added to the pan to make an amber caramel. Do not burn! Add the butter and then the apples. Cook until just tender: Reserve the apples and set aside.
2. Cut the puff pastry into rounds and prick with a fork and brush with a little egg wash. Bake the pastry rounds for about 15 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven until cooked thoroughly. Let cool.
3. Slice or "fan out" the apples to cover the pastry. Crumble the Roquefort and put on top of the apples and pastry to form a little "pizza."
4. Bake for 5 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Garnish with seedless grapes and enjoy! Bon Appetit!
