  • Baking sheet
  • Hand mixer
  • Parchment paper


  • ¾ cup ricotta cheese
  • 5.4 ounce can coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup plus 2 teaspoons
  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 12 figs halved
  • ¾ pound red cherries pitted and halved

For serving:

  • Flaky sea salt
  • Thai basil leaves
  • Mint leaves


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Prepare the ricotta and coconut:

  • In a large bowl, combine the ricotta and coconut cream and mix for at least 5-7 minutes until the ricotta is light and fluffy. Add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and mix 1-2 minutes more. Set aside.

Prepare the puff pastry:

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the thawed puff pastry sheet on top and lightly smooth it out, being careful not to overwork it.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Using a brush, brush along a 1-inch perimeter of the puff pastry. If desired, use a fork or knife to lightly score alongside the edge of the egg wash. Use a fork to lightly prick all over the inside rectangle of the tart. Do not prick the edge you brushed with the egg wash!
  • Spoon the whipped ricotta over the center of the puff pastry. Allow yourself about half an inch of space between the ricotta edge and the egg wash as the ricotta will spread while it cooks.
  • Arrange the fruit on top of the ricotta. If desired, drizzle the remaining 2 teaspoons of maple syrup all over the fruit. Sprinkle lightly with flaky sea salt.
  • Transfer to the oven for 30 minutes.

To serve:

  • Remove from the oven and allow the tart to cool for 10 minutes. Garnish with Thai basil or mint leaves, if desired. Cut into squares and enjoy!
