Fresh Fig and Goat Cheese Tart

This tart is one of the easiest meals I have ever constructed. We have decided that this is going on the  "oh, hey, we are entertaining tonight, and we forgot to go to the store, and we also have no time to cook anything else" list. Also, total cook time is about 12 minutes. Prep time...maybe 5...if you're moving slow.

Please people, make this tonight. Make it tomorrow. Make it soon and forever.

I used this recipe to get me started and then made a few changes. The first change was that instead of puff pastry dough (which needs to thaw overnight, and I am sure as hell not making any from scratch), we used Philsbury croissant rolls. Okay, not the most refined thing ever, but we were going for quick and easy (see aforementioned list). Anyway, it turned out just fine and dandy. Second, in addition to the rosemary I also added a good few cracks of fresh pepper and some lavender.

You could even add a little roasted garlic and fennel and I think it would be even better. Just a suggestions.

This was a truly delicious dinner and perfect for entertaining. The fig tart is truly sweet and pairs very well with a dry wine (remember our trip to Trader Joe's?). Cut into generous portions this tart easily serves 6...but you could stretch it to 8 and no one would mind.

Enjoy, lovelies. Stay tuned for homemade cronuts!


  1. Looks fantastic. Maybe we'll try it with the caramelized onions and fennel and make a pizza crust for it!

  2. That sounds delicious! I really don't think there is a wrong way to do this recipe. So good.
