Our beautiful lunchtime apple & blue cheese tart made from puff pastry and filled with fresh sliced organic apples and Castello blue cheese.
After the Tomato Tart was such a hit in our house, I decided to have a go at another one. We had a few bits that needed to be used up. The rest of the Boursin cheese, the puff pastry, the Castello blue that we had left from the Broccoli Soup and the Cobb Salad! Have you seen those posts yet? That one chunk of cheese has gone such a long way! Plus it’s the tastiest blue I’ve actually tried!! I always went for just the supermarket branded blue cheese until I tried this and I can’t believe how amazing it was!! Quite sad it’s all used up now! Although I love this, it’s not great for the waistline, an occasional treat is great though!
Anyway let’s get to it..
Take a look at the recipe card below…
- 320g Puff Pastry
- 1 x Apple
- 75g Boursin Herby Soft Cheese or a Creamy Cheese i.e Philadelphia
- 25g Castello Creamy Blue
- As always, pre-heat the oven to 180C/356F. We have a Rangemaster and this cooks perfectly at this temperature for this amount of time. If yours is different or a different model, please monitor and keep checking whilst cooking. Firstly, pop a big dollop of cream cheese in the center of your pastry and spread it around with the back of the spoon, don’t forget to leave a border to allow room for ‘puffing’!
- Slice and core out the center of your apples. There’s no need to peel so leave the skin on. Now add the sliced apple to the square of uncooked puff pastry and Boursin and sprinkle with blue cheese. See below.
- Pop your tarts onto baking parchment and then place in the oven for around 15 minutes on the preset 180C/356F, ours likes to cook one side more than the other, so halfway through I turn the parchment paper around in the oven to allow an even cook.
- Once the 15 minutes are up, take your tart out of the oven and leave for a minute or two to cool and you’re ready to go.
