Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons fig jam
  • 1/4 cup soft goat cheese
  • 4 dried figs, thinly sliced
  • 4 sprigs thyme, leaved finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. 1.

    Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat to 375°F. Cut puff pastry into 4 squares. Brush edges of each piece with beaten egg and fold puff pastry over itself to make a 1/2-inch border, sealing with your fingers.

  2. 2.

    Spread 1/2 teaspoon fig jam in center of each tart top jam with 1 tablespoon goat cheese, then top goat cheese with sliced dried figs. Sprinkle each tart with chopped thyme and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is soft and pastry is brown.

  3. 3.

    Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
