Ingredients
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 sheet of store bought puff pastry, thawed but chilled
  • 3 ounces of soft goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • ½ pear (I used a bosc pear), sliced
  • 8 oz blackberries
  • ¼ cup milk
  • granulated sugar for the crust (2-4 tsp)
Instructions
  1. preheat oven to 400F
  2. dust your work surface with flour and roll out your sheet of puff pastry till it's about 10x10inches
  3. move the rolled out pastry to a parchment paper lined baking tray
  4. in a separate bowl, mix goat cheese and honey until you have a very smooth and spreadable consistency
  5. Spread the middle 8 inches of the pastry sheet with the cheese mixture. I found working with a knife was easier than a spatula. Be careful as the pastry will tug and pull
  6. arrange blackberries and pear slices in the middle of the pastry sheet
  7. pull up the edges of the pastry to wrap the fruit, leaving an opening in the middle. It doesn't need to be perfect - it's supposed to look rustic!
  8. brush pastry with milk - this will help the edges pinch and stick together
  9. sprinkle pastry with sugar and gently press it into the crust
  10. bake for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and fruit is soft and bubbly
  11. dust with powdered sugar after cooling if you wish
  12. enjoy
