  • 1 Sheet of puff pastry thawed overnight in the refrigerator
  • 8 – 10 Fresh figs stem cut off and fig sliced
  • ¼ Cup Crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ Cup Pistachios chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 Egg beaten with a splash of water
  • Flaky salt (Maldon Maldon is a favorite), to finish


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Unfold the pastry sheet and using a rolling pin, roll out the pastry about one-inch wider on all sides. Using a sharp paring knife, outline the entire pastry sheet about one inch from the edges. This will create a frame around the tart that will pull up creating an edge. Don’t cut all the way through with the knife…you are just making an indentation. Place it on the parchment lined baking sheet
  • Figs: rinse and dry your figs really well. Cut off the stem end. Slice them lengthwise into about 3-4 slices per fig. Place them on the interior of the prepared puff pastry until the entire inner square is covered.
  • Sprinkle the blue cheese and pistachios over the top. Drizzle the honey over the tart. Sprinkle with the thyme.
  • Beat the egg with a splash of water in a small bowl. Using a pastry brush, brush that outer rim of the pastry. That will help it get golden brown and shiny.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is “melty”. If the crust isn’t brown, let it bake another five minutes.
  • Remove the tart carefully to a cutting board. Sprinkle with flaky salt. Cut into four large squares if serving as a meal. This is great with a side salad. OR cut into small squares if serving as an appetizer.
