I love getting brie en croute in a restaurant, but it’s kind of a pain to do at home. Here’s a great breakfast or brunch or dessert dish that has similar taste without all the fuss and preparation. Honey Pear Goat Cheese Tart .
INGREDIENTS – Honey Pear Goat Cheese Tart
1 cup flour
1 stick cold butter, diced
1/4 cup ice water
2-3 pears, thinly sliced
4 oz softened goat cheese
8 oz softened cream cheese
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup honey plus 2 TB
Preheat oven to 375F
Pulse flour and butter in processor until butter is size of small pebbles
Add ice water and turn on for a few seconds, dough will form a ball.
Wrap and put in fridge while you make filling
In a bowl, stir goat cheese, cream cheese, yogurt and 1/3 cup honey
Using slicer on processor or knife, core and thinly slice pears
Roll out dough the size of 8 – 9″ pie plate or tart pan
Put dough in plate, coming up to top edge all the way around
Put filling in the plate, top with pears in a decorative pattern (see video)
Bake for 30 minutes
Stir 2 TB honey in small bowl with 1 TB water and brush over the top of the tart
Enjoy. If you like that, try this TART.
