Fig, Thyme and Goats Cheese Tart

I don't know about you guys but I have dug out my woolly socks, blankets and chunky knit jumpers and in between indulging my pinterest obsession have found the time to start baking PIE.  

What you'll need:
  • 4 sheets ready rolled filo pastry
  • 75g creme fraiche
  • 125ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 15g parmasan cheese
  • 3 free range eggs
  • 125g goats cheese
  • 4 fresh figs
  • Bunch of fresh thyme
  • Olive oil
(Serves 4)

Preheat the oven to 180c and brush an 18cm round loose-bottomed cake tin with a little olive oil. Cut each of the four filo pastry sheets in half so they are square and lay the first one in the tin like this. 

Brush with more olive oil and continue to layer the filo pastry (oiling between each layer) until you have run out and it looks something like this. 

Beat the creme fraiche, milk, parmasan, eggs and most of the thyme in a large bowl. Then crumble in the goats cheese. It will look a bit like half cooked scrambled egg. 

Pour into the tart case carefully, leaving some room at the top. Halve your figs and place on top, trying to place them more evenly than I did! Sprinkle over the remaining thyme and bake in the oven for 45 minutes until golden and set.

Curl up and enjoy. x
