Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Tarts
These Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Tarts will be a hit at your next gathering. They are creamy and delicious, and easy to prepare.
Servings 4 people
- 75 g blue cheese
- 2 tbsp cream pouring
- 1 egg large
- 1 tsp chives finely chopped
- 1-2 sheets puff pastry (depending on size)
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 200 Degrees C (390 F). If the pastry is frozen, remove it from the freezer shortly before preparing the filling. (Don’t remove it too early or it will be difficult to cut neatly. The pastry will have a better texture if it is still chilled when placed in the oven.)
Lightly grease the tin/patty pans.
Put all the above ingredients into a food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed.
When the pastry has just defrosted, using a 6 cm cookie cutter, cut rounds of pastry and put into prepared tin/patty pans, gently pushing the pastry down into place.
Place about 1 tbsp of filling into the pastry and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the filling puffs and becomes golden brown.
Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing and placing on a wire rack to cool and store - or serve warm immediately. (Re-heat very well, also!)
