How to make it
Goats Cheese Tarts are a great spring dish, light and fluffy pastry with a creamy flavour and fluffy texture. We suggest serving with a smear of olive paste or balsamic reduction and a helping of sun-ripened tomatoes.
- Preheat oven to 220. Cut the pastry into 6 equal pieces of about 13cm diameter squares.
- Slice each Golden Cross goat’s cheese log into 5cm slices and place each cheese cylinder on a pastry square.
- Brush with a beaten egg.
- Pinch together pastry at the edges around the cheese to form a diamond, leaving the surface of the Golden Cross revealed.
- Pop a sprig of rosemary or thyme on top and bake the goats cheese tarts in the oven on a lightly greased baking tray for 15 minutes.
- Serve with green leaves.
If there’s a better combination than Goat’s cheese, beetroot and walnut we’re yet to find it. Golden Cross is a bit sweeter than other goat’s cheeses so it works particularly well with the savoury walnuts. Try it in this gorgeous Beetroot, Walnut and Goat’s Cheese Salad.
