Local, Colorado ripe peaches roasted, glazed with honey and baked in puff pastry with goat's cheese.
Ingredients
  • Roasted Peaches
  • 4-5 large peaches, halved, pitted and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5-6 sage leaves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Tartlets
  • 1 pound/455g puff pastry sheets
  • 5oz/145g Goat's cheese
  • Fresh sage leaves for garnishing
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C (convection or conventional)
  2. Place a large sheet pan in the oven to preheat.
  3. Toss the peaches with the olive oil and the chiffonaded sage leaves.
  4. Once the pan is hot, carefully toss the peaches onto the hot sheet pan.
  5. Roast the peaches for 15-25 minutes until soft and the edges are lightly browned.
  6. The convection oven will take less time so check at 15 minutes.
  7. Remove the roasted peaches from the oven and sprinkle the salt and drizzle the honey.
  8. At this point, you can serve the warm peaches with ice cream, on top of crostini with some feta cheese or as a side for grilled or roasted meats.
  9. Or keep aside as you roll out the pastry for the tartlets.
  10. I rolled out the puff pastry just a little, you don't want them too thin, and cut out 5" rounds. I made four tartlets and 8 little pockets.
  11. You should get 8 tartlets from 1 pound of pastry.
  12. Place the rounds on a parchment covered sheet pan.
  13. Place the sheet pan with the pastry rounds in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before proceeding to let the butter firm up again.
  14. Preheat the oven to 400F/200C
  15. Remove the pastry pounds from the fridge
  16. Leave a half inch border all around the puff pastry round and with a fork, dock the pastry.
  17. Add a heaping teaspoon of goats cheese in the centre of the pastry round.
  18. Arrange 3-5 peach slices on top of the goat's cheese.
  19. Sprinkle a few more crumbles of goat's cheese on top.
  20. Repeat with the other rounds.
  21. Place on the bottom and centre rack of the oven.
  22. Swap the trays half way during baking (15 minutes in)
  23. Bake for 25 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden browned and puffed.
  24. Remove from the oven, cool on the trays for 5 minutes and then move to a wire rack rack.
  25. Garnish with more fresh sage and a drizzle of honey, if desired.
  26. Enjoy warm.
