This goat cheese dessert recipe is made using a sesame seed crust.
This recipe makes one 9 x 11 pan of bars
- 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.
You can also turn this recipe into a pie – just put the goat cheese and blueberry filling into a frozen pie shell.
