Quick & Easy Honey Pear Tart

Ingredients:

  1. 1 package (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • egg wash: 1 large egg beaten with 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 large pears, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons coarse sugar (or brown sugar!)
  • 1/4 cup Diamond of California sliced almonds
  • sea salt for sprinkling
  • honey for drizzling

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). Line a 12x17 inch baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Unroll the pastry sheets on a floured work surface. Place the edge of one over the other and use a rolling pin to adhere them together. Roll the whole thing out into a 10x14 rectangle. Fold over the edges and crimp down with a fork. Crimping is much easier the colder the pastry is, so place into the refrigerator to chill if needed.
  3. Brush the entire pastry, edges included, with egg wash. Top with goat cheese.
  4. Toss the pear slices and coarse sugar together. Line the pears on top of the pastry. Sprinkle with almonds and sea salt.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven, place on a wire rack, and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Drizzle with honey before slicing and serving.

Make ahead tip: Assemble the tart through step 4. Place in the refrigerator up to 1 full day, then bake and serve. So easy!

 

Recipe Notes:

Have fun with this pear tart! You can switch up the cheese or maybe use chopped pistachios or walnuts instead of almonds. And/or add some cinnamon or savory herbs like rosemary or thyme.
