Gorgonzola Take 3: We’re on Paradise

Oh this is really, really, really (!) delicious. Very interesting flavour. Like ordering cheese platter with nuts and dried fruits, you have all those flavors in one mouth. A little sour from the apple, a bit salty from the gorgonzola, the buttery puff pastry gives it a very fragrant smell and the walnut gives the extra crunch. Ooh la.. ils sont tellement bon, comme le paradis. Quelqu’un va se regaler ce soir.

make 12

1 puff pastry sheet, thawed completely
About 1.5 medium-sized Apples, peeled and diced small – I used Granny Smith
1/4 C chopped walnuts
1/2 C crumbled gorgonzola
1 tbsp honey
pinch dried thyme
1 egg, beaten

  • Preheat oven to 200 C.
  • Place chopped apples in a bowl and cook in microwave over high heat for 5 mins. Let it cool down.
  • In a small bowl, mix the apple, walnuts, gorgonzola, honey and thyme.
  • Cut the puff pastry sheet into 12 equal squares. Place the filling into each square and fold into triangles. Pull and stretch a little bit if needed. Using a fork, scrimp the edges.
  • Place in the fridge for 5 mins before baking.
  • Brush the triangles with egg and bake for 15-20 mins till golden colour. Let it cool down a little bit before devouring.

C’est tout! C’est facile, non?

I’m not really sure about the thyme addition. I understand why, but I don’t know if it’s needed taste-wise. And call me crazy, but I want to add a pinch of salt.
