Readers, Digest: ‘The Hunger Games’ Goat Cheese Apple Tarts


“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1” will come out Nov. 21. While you wait, try making some Goat Cheese Apple Tarts like those from Peeta’s family bakery.

Adding the brown sugar and cinnamon cream cheese to the goat cheese gives the filling a sweet taste. This makes the tart taste more like dessert.
