Fig & goat cheese filled sesame tartlet


Fig + dairy, they fit to any meal in a day.

Fig and plain yoghurt for breakfast.

Fig and soft cheese on open-sandwich (like this) for lunch.

Fig and aged cheese for dessert ...

... how about some fig-n-cheese tarts for between-meal as well!


Even I only had less than an hour to make (and photo-shot) these tartlets, I know the method is fool-prove and the result's stunning. What you need:
  • Mini tart shell tray, pre-greased with butter
  • Rolling pin
  • Round cookie cutter
  • White sesame seeds
  • Sliced bread
  • Fresh fig, cut up
  • Aged goat cheese, premium quality is a must
  • Honey
  • Fresh herb

  1. Sprinkle generous amount of sesame seeds on work table, roll a slice of bread on it. Cut out the bread to a circle and place it into a tart shell.
  2. Bake the tart shells in a medium-hot oven for a minutes or two. Let the bread cools off inside the tray.
  3. Assemble the tartlets only by the time when it's ready to serve. Fill the tarts with fig and cheese, drizzle some honey and place some herb to finish.
