Butternut Squash & Cranberry Tart with blue cheese and honey
This savory cranberry tart makes the perfect accompaniment to a holiday meal, but it’s also great served with a simple green salad for a light dinner.
If you love cranberries and are searching for alternative uses besides the old stand-by, cranberry sauce, this savory Butternut Squash & Cranberry Tart is a great option. Typically, cranberries rely on a lot of sugar to tone down their tartness, but here, blue cheese and honey are all it takes. Squash, cranberries, onion, sage, and blue cheese unite to make the perfect holiday side dish.
And bonus — this tart comes together in a flash.
Preheat oven to 450°.
Press pie dough into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom; trim edges if necessary. Place tart shell in freezer while preparing remaining ingredients.
Toss together squash, cranberries, onion, 2 Tbsp. honey, oil, and sage; season with salt and pepper.
Spread Parmesan evenly over bottom of frozen tart shell, then top with squash-cranberry filling.
Bake tart until crust is golden and squash is fork-tender, 30 minutes.
