Take your pastry crust and place it in the pan.Fold the edges to fit not too tight in the pan.
With a spoon,spread the pear jam or jelly over the crust.
Wash and cut your sweet apples.Cut them into thin slices.Do not peel them.
Assemble them on the crust.You can make two layers of apples if you have more.
Sprinkle with some ground cinnamon powder over the top.
Put the pan in the oven and bake the tart for about 30-35 minutes.Until it is golden brown and fully baked.
After baking,remove from the oven and drizzle a little bit of caramel sauce on the top.
Cut into portions and serve immediately or enjoy it chilled.
