Ingredients
  

Tart Shell

  • 1 sheet puff dough
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs water

Filling

  • ½ pkg Monterey Farms Natural ArtiHearts™
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • feta cheese
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Instructions
 

Tart Shell

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Whisk the egg and the water in a small bowl. Cut the puff dough in a strip 5 inches wide and as long as the sheet will allow and place it on a parchment covered sheet pan.
  • With a pastry brush paint the top with the egg mixture. Cut three ½ inch puff dough strips lengthwise. Place two of the strips on the long edges of the 5 inch wide strip. Cut the third to fit the edges of the short ends, overlapping the thin strips at the corners, framing the tart.
  • Pierce the center of the tart with a fork and place a wire cooling rack over the top to hold the dough strips in place. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the cooling rack and continue to cook 7 to 10 minutes longer until lightly brown. Set aside.

Filling

  • Reduce the oven temperature to 350˚F. Whisk the cream and egg yolk together and season with salt and pepper.
  • Thinly slice the ArtiHearts™ and line them down the middle of the tart shell.
  • Pour the cream mixture over the ArtiHearts™. If using a hard cheese such as Old Amsterdam Aged Gouda, grate it over the top. If using fresh goat cheese, crumble the cheese over the ArtiHearts™ and if using Brie or Camembert, slice it thinly and lay the slices over the ArtiHearts™.
  • Bake in the oven 15 to 20 minutes until the cream mixture is just set. Allow to cool. Cut into bite sized pieces and serve at room temperature.
