Bosc Pear and Goat Cheese Tart

Sometimes we spend so much time obsessing about the main course, we forget  about the appetizer.  Last night, Mom was busy baking her homemade lasagna. Starving, I scrounged around and found a quart of gorgeous Bosc pears and 3 (yes, 3) logs of goat cheese, so I made myself useful and put together a simple goat cheese and pear tart. Here’s what I did:

  • I rolled out a sheet of puff pastry (thawed) and placed it on a cookie sheet.
  • Crumbled a log of goat cheese on the bottom of the pastry dough, then placed thinly sliced pear slices on top.
  • I drizzled it with raw honey and popped it in the oven at 400 for 25-30 mins.
  • I made the crust extra brown by brushing with an egg wash before placing in oven.
  • I let it cool 5 mins before transferring to cutting board, drizzled again with honey and served.
