Cheddar & Strawberry Tart

Christmas Party season is here and, once again, I have a great recipe to share with you from first party of the season. Each year, Jeff’s boss hosts the staff at his home in Oxford. His wife, Heather, and her mother do all of the cooking. She is definitely a foodie (I can always spot them) and she prepared a variety of hors d’oeuvres, perfect for munching and mingling. This year’s spread consisted of smoked pork tenderloin, a trio of hot dips, sweet & spicy shrimp skewers and veggies, but the showstopper was this beautiful cheese tart atop a cake plate in the middle of the table.

The perfect combination of savory and sweet, accompanied by the crunch and nutty flavor of the toasted pecans – it is very simple to prepare, using only a handful of ingredients.

(Also, seen in the background of this picture is a great idea for serving mixed veggies at a party- in 5oz party cups with a creamy ranch dip or hummus. Veggie platters tend to slow down the food line, so this grab-and-go idea is a great way to keep it moving!)
