Apple Goat Cheese Tart
November 20, 2022
One of the many joys of Fall is apple picking, however once you get all of those delicious apples home, the question is always what to do with them? There are only so many sweet apple dishes a girl can eat! While I love making apple pies and crisps, I find myself gravitating more and more to savory apple dishes like this sweet and savory Apple Goat Cheese Tart! A true North Fork farm-to-table recipe, everything you need can be picked up locally.
- 1 frozen puff pastry sheet, defrosted
- 2 apples, cored & sliced
- 8 ozs goat cheese
- brown sugar
- fresh cracked pepper
- fresh rosemary
- fresh thyme
- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- Let the puff pastry thaw on the counter for an hour before unfolding and placing on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Fold over the edges of the pastry, crimping with the tines of a fork, to make a crust and set aside.
- Meanwhile, peel and slice the apples into thin (1/4 inch) slices.
- In a small bowl combine goat cheese, 3 sprigs of thyme, and 2 tablespoons of honey and whip until light, fluffy, and smooth.
- Spread the goat cheese mixture evenly across the interior of your pastry.
- Arrange the apple slices across the top of the goat cheese in an alternating pattern.
- Brush the top of the apples with melted butter and cover with a light sprinkle of brown sugar, fresh rosemary, and fresh thyme.
- Bake for 20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
- Let cool for 5 minutes. Top with a drizzle of honey, cracked pepper and any remaining fresh herbs.
- Serve with a chilled bottle of Dry Riesling and enjoy!
