Goat cheese lends an exotic flavour and mild tartness to this rich and creamy cheesecake-style tart.

  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • Sable Pastry
  • 2/3 cups goat cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup raspberry (red, golden and/or black)

Method

Press pastry into 9-inch (23 cm) tart pan with removable bottom. Freeze for 15 minutes, or refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm.

Line pie shell with foil; fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake in bottom third of 400°F (200°C) oven for 15 minutes. Remove weights and foil. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes longer or until light brown. Transfer to rack; let cool.

In large bowl, beat goat cheese with cream cheese until smooth. Beat in sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, scraping down bowl occasionally. Beat in cream, orange rind and vanilla. Scrape into tart shell. Sprinkle with raspberries.

Bake on baking sheet in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until centre no longer jiggles when shaken. Let cool on rack. Refrigerate until chilled and firm, 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover with waxed paper; refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
