Potato Puff Pastry with Lemon Salad
PAIRED WITH: La Belle Promenade Pinot Noir
Step 1: Mix the cream cheese, garlic, zest, paprika and thyme in a bowl, salt and pepper to taste.
Step 2: Let the puff pastry warm slightly to room temperature and roll it out to desired thickness. Using a fork, make indents close to the end of the pastry to create a lifted crust.
Step 3: Using an offset spatula, spread the herb cream cheese up to the edge of your crust. Using a mandoline, (or knife if you don’t have one) thinly slice the potatoes as thin as possible. Then scallop the potatoes in any desired design on top of the cream cheese.
Step 4: Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 5: Toss the herb greens with the lemon juice and a touch of extra virgin olive oil salt and pepper to taste and top on top of the potato tart.
Step 6: Serve with a slice of lemon!
