Total Time: 2 hrs
Makes: 1 (9-inch) tart (about 8 to 10 servings)
This tart from Chef Garces of Amada restaurant in Philadelphia takes the savory dessert trend to a whole other level. The combination of spiced figs with salted walnuts and sweet blue cheese makes the dish versatile enough to serve as an appetizer or as an adventurous dessert along with a scoop of ice cream.
Game plan: You may need to roll out the puff pastry dough to completely line the tart pan; lightly dust a clean surface with all-purpose flour and gently roll.
