 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      sheet         (1/2 pound)  frozen puff pastry -- thawed
    3      pounds        Golden Delicious apples
                         Juice of 1 lemon
    1      stick         (1/2 cup) unsalted butter -- cut into thin 
      1/2  cup           sugar
                         Whipped cream as accompaniment
 Peel, halve, and core the apples, brushing them with the lemon juice 
 as they are cored. In a 10 1/4-inch round copper gratin pan., 1 1/2 
 inches deep, arrange the butter pieces on the bottom and sprinkle 
 them with the sugar. Arrange the apples, round side down, in 2 
 concentric circles, overlapping them slightly, in the pan. Cook the 
 apple mixture over moderately low heat for 30 to 35 minutes, or until 
 the sugar is a golden brown caramel, transfer it to the middle of a 
 preheated 400 degree oven, and bake it for 10 to 15 minutes, or until 
 the apples are just tender. Let the apple mixture cool for 5 minutes.
 Arrange the dough over the apple mixture and let it soften just until 
 the edges can be tucked down between the apples and the side of 
 the pan. Prick the dough and bake the tart in the middle of the oven 
 for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden. Invert a 
 serving plate over the pan and invert the tarte Tatin carefully onto 
 Serve warm with whipped cream.
