This savory tart definitely impressed me. The puff pastry was so buttery and crispy after baking, which went deliciously well with creamy goat cheese, lemon zest and fresh rosemary leaves. All the flavors were just perfectly balanced, YUM!

Transfer the two large pieces of pastry to a 13x18-inch rimmed baking sheet.

Brush beaten egg on a 3/4-inch border around each large piece of pastry.

Stack the trimmed strips of pastry onto the damp dough, creating a border all the way around.

Evenly spread the cheese mixture inside the borders of each pastry.

Then evenly arrange the zest of the lemon over the cheese.

Bake the tarts until puffed and deep golden brown on the top and golden on the bottom, about 16 minutes, rotating the pan half way through baking, watch carefully, do not burn.

Let it cool for about 3 minutes on a wire rack and cut into bout 4 pieces.

Serve warm.

I tried one recipe which was very similar way as this recipe. Goat cheese, rosemary and lemon are perfect taste together. For sure I will try this recipe, later I will give the review of my results. Thanks.
