- 12 (3 ounces) Werther’s Original Chewy Caramels, unwrapped
- 2 large bananas, peeled and cut into 24, 1-inch rounds
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, defrosted
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup chopped pecans, for garnish
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and grease lightly with cooking spray. Place 6 banana slices in 4 sections of prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Scatter caramels evenly over bananas. Sprinkle with salt.
Unfold puff pastry and cut into 4 even rectangles. Top each banana mound with one piece of puff pastry, pressing down the edges to seal. Using a fork, poke small holes in the tops of each puff pastry along the center. Brush each pastry with egg.
Bake until golden-brown and crispy, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from baking sheet and invert onto a serving tray. Top each tart with pecans, and dust with powdered sugar.
