mini 3 cheese tarts

- Preheat the oven (400 F/200°)
- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper
- Unroll the puff pastry
- With the help of a glass or a cylinder (7 cm diameter) cutting discs from the dough and place on a baking sheet
- Take another glass or a smaller cylinder (diameter 5 cm) to mark a smaller disk in the middle of each circle
- Prick the center of each disc with a fork (so it does not rise during cooking)
- Mix the egg yolk with milk and brush with a brush the edge of each disc
- Spread cream in the middle of each tart
- Cut the goat cheese and mozzarella into small pieces and crumble blue cheese
- Divide the cheese between the tarts, finishing with blue cheese
- Sprinkle with oregano and pepper
- Bake in a hot oven for 15 minutes until the pastry is golden


Tips and Suggestions
- For the blue cheese is easier to crumble, I put it in the freezer 30 minutes before
- These tarts can be prepared in advance and reheated at the last minute in the microwave
