Apple Goat Cheese And Honey Tartlets On Baby Arugula SaladFrom luisascatering 7 years ago
- 1 recipe of my homemade simple puff pastry OR 2 17.3-ounce packages frozen puff pastry (4 sheets), thawed shopping list
- 1 egg, beaten to blend shopping list
- 6 ounces soft fresh goat cheese (about 3/4 cup packed) shopping list
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice shopping list
- 1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt shopping list
- 3 medium Gala or granny smith apples, peeled, quartered, cored, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices shopping list
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted shopping list
- 3/4 cup honey (preferably dark), divided shopping list
- 1/2 teaspoon (scant) ground allspice shopping list
How to make it
- Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll out each puff pastry sheet on lightly floured surface to 11-inch square. Using 5-inch-diameter cookie cutter or bowl, cut out 4 rounds from each pastry sheet, forming 16 rounds total. Divide 8 pastry rounds between prepared baking sheets; pierce rounds all over with fork. Using 3 1/2-inch-diameter cookie cutter or bowl, cut out smaller rounds from center of remaining 8 rounds (reserve 3 1/2-inch rounds for another use), forming eight 5-inch-diameter rings. Brush outer 1-inch edges of 5-inch rounds on baking sheets with beaten egg; top each with 1 pastry ring. Freeze at least 30 minutes. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and keep frozen. Do not thaw before continuing.
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix cheese, lemon juice, and salt in bowl; spread mixture inside rings on frozen pastry rounds. Overlap apple slices atop cheese. Mix butter and 1/4 cup honey in small bowl; brush over apples. Sprinkle with allspice. Bake until apples are tender and pastry is golden, about 35 minutes. Place tartlets on plates. Drizzle 1 tablespoon honey over each and serve warm or at room temperature.
- Planning tip: Bake the tartlets four to six hours ahead, then store them uncovered at room temperature. Rewarm in a 350°F oven for five to ten minutes. Drizzle tartlets with honey just before serving.
