Bet of today: you are going to love this and make it in any chance you get! If not, feel free to drop some lines in this post. But I know that you will fall in love with this recipe, as I did. I have to be honest. I am not a big fan of combining sweet and salty – probably because of my heavy Greek cooking background – but I love challenges and trying new things, especially if we are talking about food! So, before the summer ends, grab some fresh peaches from your local market, pastry, goat cheese and honey and there you have a great treat! You can eat it by itself or even better serve it at a party along with some more delicious small dishes!
400 gr frozen puff pastry, thawed
400 gr ripe, sweet peaches, pitted and cut into ½ inch wedges
100 gr goat cheese, softened
2 tablespoons honey
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 200 C. Line a baking sheet with bake paper. Cut pastry into six 10 cm squares (look at picture) and place on prepared baking sheet. Prick each square all over with a fork. Spread each square with a spoonful of goat cheese leaving a 2 cm border. Top each square with peaches. Season with a few grinds of black pepper. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through, or until the pastry is puffed and golden and the peaches are soft. Drizzle with honey just before serving.
