Apple and Pear Tarte Tatin

[Photograph: Lauren Weisenthal]

This is the perfect tart for showcasing the colors and flavors of the fall season. The fruit caramelizes in a simple syrup of butter, sugar, and apple cider, making the apples and pears fork-tender over layers of flaky puff pastry.

Note: For the puff pastry, you may choose to make your own dough, or purchase it from your grocer's freezer. If using frozen dough, be sure to defrost it for three hours in the fridge before using.
