There is something about figs. I can't quite figure out what it is, but I really love them.
When I was out shopping yesterday morning, they were on sale and all perfectly ripe. I bought just a few as they don't last long. My plan was to put them in a salad. Well, that didn't quite happen, Instead they turned out into these little canapés. I was planning to cook something hearty for dinner last night as it was getting a bit chilly outside. That didn't quite happen either. We ended up with tapas and these little tarts being the centre of attention.
Fig and Camembert Tarts
Makes 8 mini tarts
1 leek, cut into very thin slices
1 fig, thinly sliced lengthways into 8 slices
60 gram piece of Camembert cheese, cut into slices
Puff pastry, enough to cut out 8 circles with a cookie cutter
1 tablespoon of butter
In a medium skillet set over a medium heat, melt the butter and add the leeks. Cook, stirring regularly for about 10-12 minutes, or until the leeks are tender and slightly browned
Place a teaspoon of the leeks over each pastry, then top with the cheese and finally a a fig slice.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about 15 minutes. The pastry should be puffed and lightly golden as well as the cheese melted. I topped them each with a parsley leaf. They should be served straight away.
