For 4 tarts of 18 cm diameter

Herb and cheese tart

Quick puff pastry

330 g flour (13 % protein)
150 g water
10 g Malt extract
7 g salt
330 g Express Butter 82 % Fat - Sheet
  • Cut the Express butter in dices and put in the refrigerator.
  • Mix all the ingredients together for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the butter dices. Work for another minute, then chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough and give two double turns.
  • Let it rest for 30 minutes in the fridge, before giving the dough the two other double turns. Let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Laminate to a thickness of 1.5 mm and use to line 4 tart moulds, letting a little pastry overlap the edges.
  • Cut the excess pastry away once the tart is filled.

This special method produces a puff pastry that is perfect for using in savoury tarts. Inserting the fat directly in cubes when working the pastry results in improved resistance to humidity. This allows puff pastry, even when filled with a wet filling, to stay crisper for longer.
