  • 4 tsp (20 mL) butter
  • 1 cup (250 mL) thinly sliced Ontario Leeks (white and pale green parts only)
  • 2 cloves Ontario Garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh Ontario Thyme Leaves
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) apple cider vinegar
  • 1 sheet (225 g) frozen butter puff pastry, thawed and refrigerated
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup (250 mL) thinly sliced Ontario Apple (Cortland, Spartan, Northern Spy)

  • 4 tsp (20 mL) Ontario Honey
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh Ontario Thyme Leaves
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard


In medium nonstick skillet, melt 2 tsp (10 mL) of the butter over medium heat; cook leeks, 1 clove of the garlic, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper, stirring frequently, until leeks are tender, about 6 minutes. Stir in thyme. Transfer to bowl and refrigerate to cool, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, melt remaining butter with garlic over medium-low heat. Stir in remaining garlic, vinegar and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) of pepper. Set aside.

Unroll puff pastry and leave on parchment paper. Place on baking sheet and with fork poke entire surface. Brush mustard over pastry, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) border. Scatter leek mixture over pastry and arrange apple slices on top. Brush with butter mixture and scatter cheese over top. Bake in 400°F (200°C) for 15 to 20 minutes or until pastry is golden.
