Artichoke Pesto Brie Tart Appetizer
This is the first tart that I have ever made and it turned out fantastic. You get a little of everything in this tart- a vegetable, a cheese, pesto, and a wonderfully flaky tart crust. And best of all it's so easy to make, just like making a pizza- buy the pre-made frozen tart crust, throw on the toppings and pop it in the oven- it's that simple!
- 1 sheet frozen butter puff pastry thawed (I used one from Aussie Bakery brand)
- ½ cup brie torn
- ½ cup marinated artichokes quartered
- 1 egg beaten
- salt & pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp pesto
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place thawed pastry sheet on a baking tray lined with parchment or a Silpat mat. Use a knife to gently score an approx. 1 inch border around edge, then with a fork poke all over the pastry dough.
Space out artichokes and brie over the surface of the pastry dough within the border. Then lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Brush the edge/border of pastry dough with the beaten egg.
Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
Once done baking, drizzle pesto over the tart.
