Tartlets are one of our favourite things. Not only can they be sweet or savoury, but they can be served as a little snack, starter, or paired with a side salad to become a full meal. This recipe uses a goat’s cheese and apple filling to give you a full mix of flavours.
For the pastry
For the filling
Pre-heat the oven to 220°c/200°c fan/gas mark 7, and dust your tart tins with flour. While the oven’s warming up, roll out your pastry, ensuring you’ll have enough to cover each tin.
Cut the pastry into equal sizes and press them into the tart tins, cutting off any overhangs with a knife.
Cut up the goat’s cheese and place a few slices into each tart. Then, using a spoon, press the cheese into the pastry. This should fill all the gaps and create an even layer of cheese.
Peel and remove the cord from the apples. Then, slice them up into reasonable sized chunks, ready to place on top of the tarts.
Place the apple slices on top of the tart, making sure to cover all the goat’s cheese. Then, sprinkle the muscovado sugar and walnuts on top to finish.
Bake the tarts for 20–25 minutes, or until the apples and pastry have turned golden. Leave to cool for a few minutes before serving with a side salad.
