Recipe and Photo by Home & Plate

1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 pears, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 ounce goat cheese  
Fresh cracked pepper
Fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
Parchment paper

Preheat the oven to 450° F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Unfold one sheet of thawed puff pastry and place it on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Fold the edges of the pastry in and crimp the edges with the tines of a fork.

Core and slice the pears thinly and drizzle the lemon juice over top to keep the tears from browning. Crumble the goat cheese and sprinkle on top of the pastry sheet.  Arrange the pear slices on top in an alternating pattern. Top the tart with a sprinkle of sugar and bake for 20 minutes until the pastry sheet is golden brown.

Cool for 5 minutes then drizzle honey over top. Sprinkle the tart with the chopped rosemary and cracked pepper.

Serves 4. Total time: 30 minutes
