Servings: 1 tart
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry I used Pepperidge Farm, you will get two sheets in the box
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp water
- 2 pears sliced thin with peel on
- 2 ounces blue cheese crumbled
- Honey for drizzling
- 1 egg white for edges
Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper. *
Prepare puff pastry, thaw per manufacturers instructions but should still be cold.
Take almond flour and sugar and mix in small bowl with 1Tbsp water until paste is formed.
With a small knife trace a 1 inch edge around the perimeter of the puff pastry.
On the inside of the 1 inch border take a fork and poke all around so crust does not rise in center.
In the center evenly distribute the almond paste.
Evenly lay the pear slices over the almond mixture.
Arrange blue cheese on top and even under a few pears.
With a pastry brush very lightly brush egg white onto 1 inch border.
Drizzle with honey.
Bake for 20-22 minutes or until edges are golden brown and pears are soft.
Let cool 10-15 minutes.
The Pepperidge Farms brand give you (2) 9x9 squares of puff pastry. I only used one. If your puff pastry is larger adjust filling quantities to accommodate.
I used Maytag Blue blue cheese, it is mild and creamy.
This cuts very nicely with a pizza cutter.
