Beet, Cheddar, and Apple Tarts

Thinly sliced beets add beautiful color to these small tarts, just the right size for appetizers. Use store-bought puff pastry for the rounds.

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 25 mins
  • servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed and cut into six 4 1/2-inch rounds
  • 3/4 cup shredded white cheddar (3 ounces)
  • 1 small apple, cored and very thinly sliced
  • 1 small beet, scrubbed, peeled, and very thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place pastry rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Divide half the cheese among pastry rounds. Top each with 2 to 3 apple slices. Tuck 2 to 3 beet slices among apple slices and top with remaining cheese. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with thyme. Bake until pastry is golden brown and slightly puffed, 13 to 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
