Goat Cheese Tart

Goat Cheese Tart

This tart is so yummy  and light!  I recommend serving as either a brunch item or as a light lunch with a cup of soup!

Ingredients

  • Goat Cheese Tart
  • 1 1/2 cups        all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting the board
  • To taste            Kosher salt
  • 13 Tbsp            cold unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 – 4 Tbsp        ice water
  • 3/4 cup            chopped shallots (3 to 4 shallots)
  • 10 1/2 oz         garlic-and-herb soft goat cheese
  • 1 cup               heavy cream
  • 3 extra-large    eggs
  • 1/4 cup            chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/8 tsp             freshly ground black pepper
  • * I actually used 6 oz goat cheese, and added both a bit of blue cheese and gruyere for depth/balance.
  • * I recommend the Montrachet brand goat cheese.
