Peach Tarts with Goat Cheese and Honey
I have a secret love for ready made frozen puff pastry. I love how versatile it is, and how much you can do with it. I love how little time it takes to prepare, making for effortlessly easy breakfasts that impress nonetheless. Sweet, savoury, or sweet and savoury combined - when it comes to puff pastry, anything goes. In these peach tarts, the sweetness of the peach is a wonderful balance to savoury goat cheese. The honey and black pepper finish it off.
2 squares frozen puff pastry (the kind I use is about 14 x14cm, or 5.5 x 5.5 inches), thawed
60g goat cheese
1 ripe peach, cut into slices
2 teaspoons honey
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the puff pastry (thawed) on top. If still frozen, let it thaw for 15-20 minutes.
2. Using a fork, prick tiny holes into the puff pastry all over the surface. Then, spread with goat cheese leaving about a 1.5 cm rim all around. Top with half a peach per square, then sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
3. Place in the oven for approximately 20 minutes, until the puff pastry is puffed and golden and the peaches are soft. Remove from the oven and drizzle with honey. Serve hot.
