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
Courses: Main Course
Serves: 2 people

Recipe Ingredients

2   Sheets frozen puff pastry - thawed
2   Egg yolks
2 teaspoons 10mlCorn oil
2 teaspoons 10mlWater
4 teaspoons 20mlRipe tomatoes - sliced 1/4
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlExtra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSugar
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
1/2 cup 118mlGarden Pesto - (see recipe or store-bought pesto)

Recipe Instructions

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.
