Perfect. It came out spectacular. the template works wonderful and the freezing ahead is genius.
I have made double this recipe for my family's Christmas Eve dinner every year since the recipe was published. Yes, a lot of work, but so worth it. Some of us eat half and some have more of an appetite. If my husband and I are lucky we find one tucked away in the freezer later in the winter...they really keep much longer than a week! I have to try goat cheese! Never had trouble with them being overcooked, and I started with a much less than optimal oven
Haven't made this dish in a couple of years, but was reminded of it while browsing my recipe box. I have had excellent results each time I made it and I, too, substituted goat cheese for the blue cheese for some guests. I make a different pattern on the pastry to indicate the cheese inside. This recipe is quite involved and takes time, but I have had perfect results and rave reviews each time I have served it. Great for a dinner party: the work can be done a week in advance, which keeps me out of the kitchen and able to spend time with my guests.
I've made this dish a number of times for Christmas. Not only is it phenomenal tasting, but with almost all the work done ahead of time, it makes Christmas dinner very low stress. Absolutely one of the finest recipes!
