  1. -Cut the stems off the cress. Wash the leaves and drain well. Fry them lightly in a non-stick pan with 30 g of butter for 5 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Coat the insides of 4 molds with the remaining butter.
  2. -Unroll the pate feuilletee/puff pastry. Cut out 4 circles and line the molds with them. Puncture the bottom with a fork. divide the cheese into four portions. Line the bottom of the pastry with a equal share of goat cheese (break it into small lumps with your fingers as you drop it in). Lay four equal portions of the cress over the goat cheese.
