Apple, Prosciutto & Gorgonzola Tartlets
This is the second recipe that I came up with using the apples we picked up in Julian. I am surprised that we have any left, they are so delicious just by themselves as a snack. These actually came about from ingredients that I had on hand. The flavors and textures work together wonderfully. The prosciutto becomes a bit crisp in the oven, and that really enhances its salty bite. Put that next to a sweet apple and pungent Gorgonzola cheese, and you have a winner. I will definitely be serving these at my next dinner party or get together. These have a little dash of Fall in each bite. Fall doesn't only have to be about pumpkins, apples need some love too.
- 1 Sheet Puff Pastry, Thawed
- 1 Apple, Thinly Sliced
- 3-4 Slices of Prosciutto, torn or chopped into equal pieces
- 1-2 tbsp. Gorgonzola, Crumbled
- Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees F.
- Roll out the thawed puff pastry on a floured surface to be about the size of 11x17. Pierce with a fork.
- Use a round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to cut circles out of the dough.
- Place circles on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until they are golden in color.
- Reduce the heat of the oven to 350 Degrees F.
- Once baked, top each tartlet with apple slices, a piece of prosciutto and Gorgonzola crumbles.
- Place back in the oven for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese has just started to melt.
- Transfer to a serving plate.
