Description

This is a savory take on a Sweet French Classic. Roasted Beets thinly slice Arranged in a beautiful circular motion covered in an Herb and Citrus goat cheese mixture then topped with puff pastry and baked until golden brown. Once out of the oven flip this delectable Tart so the pastry is on the bottom and serve. This is always a unique crowd pleaser.
