I was itching to "create" something. I had puff pastry sheets in the freezer, fresh strawberries from the farmer's market and goat cheese so I decided to put them together. I have a new found love for goat cheese. I tried it at a farmer's market several weeks ago and my knees almost buckled. The gentleman selling the cheese was also the maker of the succulent cheese. He told us about his farm and how his family is involved in the business. I love hearing about their stories. His story reminded me of the days when my dad used to make cheese in India.
The warm and buttery puff pastries with the salty and smooth gaot cheese topped with cold and sweet strawberries was so delightful on a cozy Sunday evening. This can be served as an appetizer or even dessert. —themessimake.com
