4 x 13cm x 13cm puff pastry squares
1 egg, beaten
Cracked black pepper
3 tbsp crème fraîche
1 pear, cored and sliced
80g Gorgonzola piccante
30g walnuts, chopped
2 slices Parma Ham, roughly torn
2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves

Preheat oven to 200°C.

Score a 1cm rim around the perimeter of the pastry squares. Prick the centre all over with a fork. Brush pastry with beaten egg and sprinkle with pepper.

Spread a little crème fraîche over the base of each tart and add a layer of pear slices.

Top each tart with Gorgonzola, walnuts, Parma Ham and thyme leaves.

Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes until the pastry has risen and turned golden brown.

Cook’s tip: These tarts are equally delicious served cold as part of a picnic lunch or dinner party starter.
