Woman's Weekly recipe Celebrate with the Royal Wedding this bank holiday and try these savoury tarts with flamed-roasted peppers, goats cheese and sweet cherry tomatoes on a crisp pastry base


  • 2 x 230g sheets ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 150g pack smooth mild goat’s cheese, sliced into 12 (we used Coeur de Lyon la Buche)
  • 190g jar flame-roasted peppers, drained
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 tbsp tiny basil leaves
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 tsps olive oil
  • 1 medium egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 baking sheets lined with baking parchment
  • 7.5cm (3in) and 6cm (21/2in) heart-shaped cutters

Make your own heart-shaped templates out of card. Put on to the pastry and the pepper and cut around edges with a sharp knife.


  1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Spread the pastry sheets out on a lightly floured surface and stamp out 12 pastry hearts with the larger cutter. Press the smaller cutter in the centre of the pastry lightly to mark a frame. Lightly score these edges.
  2. Put a slice of goat’s cheese on each pastry heart. Cut open the peppers flat on a chopping board. Use the smaller heart-shaped cutter to stamp out 10 shapes; fit these in the pastry hearts. Cut up the pepper trimmings and put on top of the other 2 pastry hearts.
  3. Top each one with a sliver of garlic, a slice of tomato and a couple of basil leaves. Season and drizzle with the oil. Brush the pastry edges with egg, to glaze. Bake for 15-20 mins, until golden brown and bases crisp. Serve warm or cold.

These look lovely - I've been looking for more savoury ideas for my Royal Wedding party - because it's on in the morning too many cakes doesn't feel right - but I got stuck after Coronation chicken and quiche!
