 12 mini puff pastries, thawed
 ¾ cup coarsely crushed pistachios
 1 peach, cut into wedges

1

Preheat oven to 180°C for 5 Minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

In a non-stick pan, heat olive oil and start frying the Akkawi cheese pieces on both sides until they're golden. This should take about 5 Minutes. If they come out very oily, place them on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat.

3

Arrange puff pastries on the parchment paper. Sprinkle each pastry with about 1 teaspoon crushed pistachios, leaving a 1/2 cm border. Top with golden Akkawi and arrange the peaches slices on top of the cheese. Make 6 tarts with peach and 6 with apricot. Drizzle the fruit wedges with a little bit of honey then brush the pastry edges with beaten egg.

4

Transfer to the oven and bake for 30-35 Minutes minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden. Finish each tart with more honey, black pepper, flaky salt, and basil. Serve and enjoy!
