I didn't specify how much goat cheese to buy, so the husband came back with a 10 oz loaf. I don't want to look at the receipt to know how much 10 oz of goat cheese was, but I did know that it was more than enough that I could get through before it went bad.
Rather than make copious goat cheese salads, I went the opposite direction, and made goat cheese tarts.
First off, I'm someone who always makes their own crust, always. But time is precious, and even more so recently, so to save my sanity, I bought store-bought phyllo crust. Pretty good, and it makes this recipe really easy (yet they look super fancy).
goat cheese phyllo tarts
4 oz of goat cheese
2 tbs of honey or maple syrup
1 package of phyllo tarts
toppings-- I used fresh raspberries.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
With a mixer, blend goat cheese until creamy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add egg and honey and continue to beat for another minute or two until frothy.
Pour goat cheese mixture into each phyllo tart, filling each one to the brim.
Bake in oven for 10 minutes, or until filling has puffed and is golden in color.
Remove from heat and top with a raspberry, or other topping of your choice.
Feel really accomplished for making something that looks so fancy in about 20 minutes.
