  • 1 package of puff pastry
  • 1 pound small Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • Zest & juice of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6oz gentle herb greens
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil


Step 1: Mix the cream cheese, garlic, zest, paprika and thyme in a bowl, salt and pepper to taste.

Step 2: Let the puff pastry warm slightly to room temperature and roll it out to desired thickness. Using a fork, make indents close to the end of the pastry to create a lifted crust. 

Step 3: Using an offset spatula, spread the herb cream cheese up to the edge of your crust. Using a mandoline, (or knife if you don’t have one) thinly slice the potatoes as thin as possible. Then scallop the potatoes in any desired design on top of the cream cheese.

Step 4: Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 5: Toss the herb greens with the lemon juice and a touch of extra virgin olive oil salt and pepper to taste and top on top of the potato tart. 

Step 6: Serve with a slice of lemon! Enjoy with an elegant Pinot Noir of your choice, we recommend Flâneur Wine’s 2017 La Belle Promenade Pinot Noir
