Goat Cheese Tart

Herbed Goat Cheese Tart
An unusual and delicious tart made with goat cheese that can be a savory entree or be transformed into a dessert tart with the addition of crystallized flowers, and fresh lavender as the herb.

Adapted from Gourmet Magazine.

1 8- or 9-inch pie crust (homemade, refrigerated or frozen)
8 oz. mild goat cheese
1 C. cottage cheese
3 large egg yolks
1/4 C. flour
1 stick butter, softened
1 tsp. dried Herbes de Provence
2 Tbsp. whole fresh herb leaves and edible flowers (e.g., thyme, marjoram, lavender, rosemary)


Bake pie shell at 350 degrees until almost cooked, but still pale.

In food processor, mix cheeses, egg yolks, flour and butter until smooth. Blend in Herbes de Provence and spoon into pie shell.

Bake 20 minutes or until filling is just set.

Sprinkle tart with herbs and continue baking until filling is puffed and golden, about 20 minutes more.

Serve warm, with edible flowers on top in a pretty pattern.

(Reheat leftovers in microwave just until warm. You can make ahead and freeze. Re-bake frozen pie at 350 until warmed through, covering crust with foil if it gets too brown.)
