Apple Goat Cheese Tart

Apple and goat cheese tarts

Tarts, or tartlets, are some of my favorite things to make when I’m having guests over. They are easy to prepare, take very little time, and can be infinitely customized. One of the earliest recipes I put up on the site was my Pear and Blue Cheese Tartlets. After a month in Spain I learned about canastillas de huevos and added these Quail Egg and Bacon Tartlets. Now I am adding this Apple Goat Cheese Tart since they are so, so delicious. The perfect party canape.

Now you may be wondering why I called this apple goat cheese tart instead of tartlets. In the picture they are clearly tartlets or mini tarts. The reason is that this recipe also works for a 9-inch proper tart if you wanted to make it in large form. The tartlet size however works great for a cocktail party, which I tend to throw a lot of.

The ingredients are simple. There are just 3 main ones. 150 grams of goat cheese (chevre), 1 apple finely minced, and 1/2 yellow onion finely minced. Remember, tarts can be savory as well as sweet. Then mixed with a little salt and freshly cracked black pepper, you’ve got your filling!

I am not going to give a recipe for the tartlet shells since I used store-bought. I actually go for store bought more often than not just because it’s so convenient, and I’m usually making large batches for guests. I don’t have very many tartlet rings at home. If you want to make your own however, by all means go for it.

After putting the filling into the tartlet shells, I just plucked a sprig of rosemary to put on top. I put the tartlets into the oven at 175 Celsius for 15 minutes. That’s it, super simple apple goat cheese tarts perfect for parties of all sizes.

This is after about 10 minutes. Notice how they still need to get a little more brown on the edges.
