Anne opted to make her own crust and bake it in a Tart Pan, because she makes the best crust ever! She also used Tomatoes that we had in the pantry and not the variety of Heirloom Tomatoes in the recipe. You can personalize this recipe based on what you may already have available. I could see it made with Steamed Asparagus Spears or even Sliced Onion.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
1 - Sheet Pan lined with Parchment Paper
Heirloom Tomato Tart from The Beekman Brothers
4 oz. Goat Cheese, crumbled
2 TBS Olive Oil, divided
2 Large Eggs
1 sheet (7 - 8 oz.) Frozen All Butter Puff Pastry, thawed but still cold.
1 C Whole Milk - Ricotta Cheese, drained
3/4 lb. Tomatoes, cored, halved and cut into 1/2" thick slices. Choose a variety of Heirloom Tomatoes.
3/4 tsp Salt, divided.
1/3 C Fresh Chopped Basil
1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Flour for rolling the Pastry
On a lightly floured surface:
Roll the Pastry into a 10" X 15" rectangle.
Transfer to the Sheet Pan.
Use a Paring Knife and score a border 1" in from all 4 edges around the rectangle.
Cut into, but not through the dough.
Using a fork, prick only the area inside the border to allow the border to rise higher than the center.
Brush the center with 1 TBS of the Olive Oil.
In a large mixing bowl:
1/2 tsp of the Salt
Mix together with a Blending Fork.
Spread the mixture evenly over the center area of the Pastry.
Top with Tomatoes, overlapping slightly.
Sprinkle the Tomatoes with remaining 1/4 tsp Salt and remaining 1 TBS Oil.
Bake 30 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is set.
Peace in the Kitchen!
