Fig and Goat Cheese Tartlets


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg lightly beaten


  • 8 oz goat cheese
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp honey more for drizzling on top
  • 5 fresh figs


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and sugar.

  2. Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender.

  3. Add the beaten egg and mix in well with a fork.

  4. Turn dough out onto the counter. It will be very crumbly. Form it into a ball. You may need to knead it a couple of times. Flatten the ball into a disc.

  5. Cover the disc with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 15-30 minutes (this will make the pastry dough easier to work with).

  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  7. Beat the filling ingredients together with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.

  8. Once adequately chilled, remove pastry dough from the fridge and cut into 12 equally sized portions.

  9. Press each portion into a tart cup.

  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven.

  11. Spoon filling into tarts and return to oven for an additional 15 minutes.

  12. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

  13. Place a slice of fig on top of each tartlet and drizzle with honey.
