Easy and Fun Tarte Soleil
This is a beautiful sunburst tart. Very easy to make , and so fun!
Roll out 1 puff pastry. Using a rolling pin, make a circle. Take a glass and press it upside down onto the dough, in the center of your circle (this is just to make an impression, do not let it cut through the dough.) This is the imprint for the center of your sunburst.
Spread mascarpone, place the slices of turkey, and sprinkle with cheese all around, avoiding the center. Season with salt and pepper.
Cover with the second puff pastry. Make your second puff pastry the same size and shape as the first one. With an upside down glass, again make the imprint for the center of the sunburst. With a knife, cut the rays.
Twist every ray of sunburst about 3 times. (Be careful not to break any ray.)
With a pastry brush, cover with egg yolk.
Bake in oven for 35 minutes. Enjoy!
