Ingredients

Pastry

1 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/2 cup
cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
4 to 5 tablespoons
ice water

Filling

1 (8-ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup
crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream
1
large Land O Lakes® Eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon
coarse ground pepper
1/3 cup
chopped roasted red peppers
3 tablespoons
lightly toasted pine nuts or your favorite chopped nuts
2 tablespoons
chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until filling is set. Let stand 20 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges. Cover; store refrigerated.

Made this last night for our holiday open house. It was delicious! The only thing I would do is add a little more blue cheese to give it a bit more tang.
