1poundpeachespitted and cut into ½″ wedges (about 3 large peaches)
4oz.Goat Cheesesoftened to room temp to make it easy to spread
2tablespoons coconut sugar
1 ½teaspoonsground black pepper
Thaw puff pastry to room temp or thaw overnight in fridge. Can leave pastry in fridge for up to 2 days before baking.
Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash and slice peaches into ½″ wedges and set aside.
Remove your thawed pastry from the box, removing any plastic from inside the pastry.
Keep pastry in its original shape (the way it came in the box) and roll out puff pastry onto lightly floured parchment paper, to a large rectangle measuring about 15×10.
Prick with a fork in the middle of the pastry, leaving a ½-1″ border around the edges.
Then slide parchment paper onto a rimmed baking sheet and smear the barley softened goat cheese all over the middle of the pastry where you pricked the holes.
Like pictured above, layer your peaches in rows of 4, slightly overlapping each peach, or go crazy and layer with any design your heart desires!
Sprinkle peaches with sugar and black pepper and bake for 30 minutes until edges of pastry are golden brown and puffed.
Remove from oven and let cool, then sprinkle with salt and drizzle with honey.
*Can make 1 day ahead and keep in the fridge. Pop in oven at 250 until warmed through or bump oven up to 400 for 5-10 minutes to get crispy again, but keep your eye on it to make sure it doesn't brown too much.
