Recipe for Apple Walnut Gorgonzola Rustic Tart

Recipe Ingredients:
packaged, flat pie crust
1/2  cup candied walnuts, chopped
1/4  cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese (or blue cheese)
tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
Tbsp maple syrup
large granny smith apples (or other good cooking apples such as jonagold or fuji), peeled, cored, chopped
teaspoon of lemon juice (optional)

Cooking Directions:
1.  Toss the walnuts, gorgonzola, thyme, chopped apples, and maple syrup together in a medium size bowl. As you are working with the apples (chopping them, mixing them in with the other ingredients), if you want, you can squeeze a little lemon juice on them to help keep them from discoloring. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap while you prepare the crust.

2.  Preheat oven to 350

3.  Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until crust is nicely browned. If at any time it looks like the walnuts are getting a little burnt, you can lightly tent a piece of aluminum foil over the center. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. A pizza wheel works great for slicing up the tart.
