Apple, Goat Cheese, and Honey Tartlets from Bon Appétit
Ingredients

8 SERVINGS

  • 2   (17.3-oz.) packages frozen puff pastry (4 sheets), thawed
  • 1    egg, beaten to blend
  • 6   oz. soft fresh goat cheese (about ¾ cup packed)
  • 1    Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • ¼  tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 3   medium Gala apples, peeled, quartered, cored, cut into ⅛ inch-thick slices
  • 3   Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾  cup honey (preferably dark), divided
  • ½   tsp. (scant) ground allspice


Procedure
Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll out each puff pastry sheet on lightly floured surface to 11-inch square. Using 5-inch-diameter cookie cutter or bowl, cut out 4 rounds from each pastry sheet, forming 16 rounds total. Divide 8 pastry rounds between prepared baking sheets; pierce rounds all over with fork. Using 3 ½-inch-diameter cookie cutter or bowl, cut out smaller rounds from center of remaining 8 rounds (reserve 3½-inch rounds for another use), forming eight 5-inch diameter rings. Brush outer 1-inch edges of 5-inch rounds on baking sheets with beaten egg; top each with 1 pastry ring. Freeze at least 30 minutes.

Do Ahead: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and keep frozen. Do not thaw before continuing. Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix cheese, lemon juice, and salt in bowl; spread mixture inside rings on frozen pastry rounds. Overlap apple slices atop cheese. Mix butter and ¼ cup honey in small bowl; brush over apples. Sprinkle with allspice. Bake until apples are tender and pastry is golden, about 35 minutes. Place tartlets on plates. Drizzle 1 tablespoon honey over each and serve warm or at room temperature.

Do Ahead: Bake the tartlets four to six hours ahead, then store them uncovered at room temperature. Rewarm in a 350°F oven for five to ten minutes. Drizzle tartlets with honey just before serving.
