Blue Cheese and Fresh Berry Tart
Prep time: 15 min
Total time: 30 min
Even if you don’t like blue cheese, you must try these tarts! Sweet Dutchess strawberries and honey balance out the strong, salty notes of the cheese.
2 cups — fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries)
1¼ cup — heavy cream
120 g — blue cheese
2 tbsp — sugar
1 tsp — orange or lemon zest, finely chopped
1 tbsp — fresh lemon juice
24 mini — baked tart shells
½ tsp — honey
Freshly cracked black pepper
Wash the berries and pat them dry. Spread them on a tray lined with a towel and set aside to dry completely.
In a mixing bowl, add ½ cup cream, blue cheese, sugar, zest and lemon juice. Cream to a smooth consistency. In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining ¾ cup of cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the blue cheese mixture.
Divide the mixture evenly into the tart shells using a piping bag or simply a spoon. Cut the strawberries in half and spread all the berries decoratively on the cheese filling. Let set in the fridge for a few hours.
Just before serving, drizzle honey over the berries and top with black pepper.
