  • 1 piece Puff pastry roll fresh
  • 200 g Hard cheese (Comte, old Gouda or mountain cheese)
  • 1 piece Apple, sour
  • 4 tbsp Walnut kernels
  • 4 piece Organic eggs (size M)
  • 200 g Whipped cream
  • 2 tablespoon Mustard (2 - 4 tablespoons depending on the type of mustard)
  • 4 tablespoon Chive rolls
  • Pepper salt


  • Rinse a tart form or similar (diameter 28 cm) with cold water. Roll out the puff pastry a little larger, cover the shape with it, distribute the remnants of the pastry on top. Put the mold in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 210 degrees (convection 190 degrees).
  • Grate the cheese in two 100 gram portions. Roughly chop the walnuts and rinse the apple.
  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl and stir in the cream, mustard and 3 tablespoons of chives. Then stir in 100 grams of cheese and the walnuts. Remove the core from the apple, cut into small schnitzel and mix in.
  • Take the tart pan out of the refrigerator and prick the dough several times with a fork. Spread the cheese and egg mixture on the dough base, season with salt and pepper and spread the rest of the cheese over it.
  • Bake for 35 minutes on the lower rack until golden brown. Let rest a little before cutting. Sprinkle with the rest of the chives.
