English savory tart recipe.

The recipe does not tell what cheese to use only that it be soft. I chose to use camembert and farmers cheese together. The farmers cheese gives it a bit more body and the camembert adds a great flavor.
The cheeses were mashed together with eggs and then a small amount of butter and heavy cream were added to the mixture. The cheese & egg filling was put into a pastry crust and covered with a lid of pastry. The dough was brushed with egg yolk and the tart was baked until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.
