This goat cheese dessert recipe is made using a sesame seed crust.

This recipe makes one 9 x 11 pan of bars

Ingredients for dough:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar or evaporated can juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Ingredients for filling:

  • 16 oz fresh goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup goat milk
  • 24 oz. frozen blueberries or 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp granulated Tapioca
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Directions for dough:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F . On a cookie sheet, toast sesame seeds for 10 minutes until golden. Let the sesame seeds cool then combine in a food processor with 1 cup of flour. Blend until the sesame seeds are ground up and smooth.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the flour and sesame seed mixture with 2 remaining cups of flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter in small chunks and mix until the texture is course, about 5 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and vanilla. Pour into dough while mixer is on a slow speed, continuing to mix until all liquid is absorbed. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the dough out of the bowl into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 3 days.
  • When the dough comes out of the refrigerator the consistency will be similar to cookie dough; soft and sticky. While working with the dough keep your hands covered with flour so the dough will stick to them less. Reserving about 1 cup of dough on the side, press the remaining dough evenly on the bottom of the 9×11 pan. Set aside and preheat the oven to 350° F.

Directions for filling:

  • With a spoon, mix together berries, brown sugar, cinnamon, tapioca and flour.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, gently beat goat cheese with egg, milk and vanilla.
  • Spread the goat cheese on top of the dough, then pour the berry mixture on top. Sprinkle the reserved 1 cup of dough over the top of the bars by pulling off small chunks of dough and dropping the pieces of dough on top of the bars.
  • Bake for 1 hour, until dough on top is slightly browned. Let cool before serving.
