This creamy blue cheese tart garnished with roasted red peppers, pine nuts and parsley is an ever popular appetizer.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Place flour in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in water with fork until flour is just moistened. Shape into a ball. Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle.
Place into 9- or 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom or pie pan; press firmly on bottom and up sides of pan. Cut away excess pastry; prick all over with fork. Bake 17-22 minutes or until very lightly browned.
Combine cream cheese and blue cheese in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Continue beating, gradually adding whipping cream, egg and ground pepper until blended. Spread into baked pastry. Sprinkle with roasted red pepper, pine nuts and parsley.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until filling is set. Let stand 20 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges. Cover; store refrigerated.

Even though it seems like summer may have just started, let’s face it – school is just around the corner. Even if you don’t want to think about it (or, let’s be honest here, are secretly excited to have the kids back in school), it helps to plan ahead. More ...
