'Tomato Time' Tart Recipe - Cooking Index
Prick the pastry with a fork so that it doesn't puff up during baking. This tart works as an entree or, cut into smaller pieces, as hors d'oeuvres.Type: Vegetables
|2||Sheets frozen puff pastry - thawed|
|2 teaspoons||10ml||Corn oil|
|4 teaspoons||20ml||Ripe tomatoes - sliced 1/4|
|1/2 teaspoon||2.5ml||Extra-virgin olive oil|
|Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste|
|1/2 cup||118ml||Garden Pesto - (see recipe or store-bought pesto)|
Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut each sheet into an 8-inch circle, using a salad-size plate as a guide. Remove to an ungreased baking sheet. Prick the pastry all over with a fork.
Whisk together the egg yolks, corn oil and water; brush lightly on the pastry. Arrange the tomatoes in concentric circles, leaving a 1/2-inch edge.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle the tarts evenly with the olive oil, sugar and pepper. Bake about 25 minutes or until the tarts are golden and the tomatoes are caramelized.
Serve immediately, with a dollop of Garden Pesto.
