Fig, Fresh Cranberry, Toasted Pine Nuts and Gruyere Cheese Tart

My wife has been making some great Savory Tarts since we returned from France. We spent 6 weeks in Europe this Summer. We stay with friends throughout France and they served some incredible food. We had amazing Savory Tarts. Here's a delicious Tart with Fruit, Cheese and Toasted Pine Nuts. It could be served as an Entrée or a Dessert. I drizzle it with Honey, in place of Olive Oil, when serving it as a Dessert.

This recipe calls for Puff Pastry. My wife makes her own Pastry Crust. She makes the Tarts in an 8" X 12" Fluted Rectangle Tart Pan with a removable bottom.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

1 Sheet of Puff Pastry or your own homemade Pastry Crust. 
6 Figs, cut into quarters.
1/2 C Fresh Cranberries
1 C Grated Gruyere Cheese
2 TBS Toasted Pine Nuts. I toast them in a Cast Iron Skillet on the stove.
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 TBS Olive Oil

Roll out dough to fit the bottom and sides of the Tart Pan.
Scatter with:
Figs, Cranberries, Cheese, Pine Nuts
Salt and Pepper.
Drizzle with Olive Oil. (Honey is served as a Dessert)
Bake 20 - 25 minutes.

Peace in the Kitchen!
