Week 22: Sweet or Savory Tarts

  • Apple, Caramelized Onion, Gruyere Tart
  • Lobster Tart
  • Asparagus, Leek Tart
  • Zucchini, Tomato, Onion Tart
  • Sun Dried Tomato Tart

The grocery only had 2 sheets of puff pastry left, so I had to stretch it along with the pie dough I threw together and the puff pastry shells.

The apple, caramelized onion, Gruyere tart, was delicious. I caramelized the onions in a saute pan, sliced granny smith apples into thin slices. Then I arranged the apple slices, topped with onions, the shredded Gruyere.

For the lobster tart, I used the puff pastry shells, and added filled with a mixture of egg, imitation lobster chunks, salt, pepper, and onion, then baked. The batter was a little thin, so a lot leaked out of the bottoms of the shells, but it still worked.

For the next one, I sauteed asparagus and leeks and spread them over puff pastry with Fontina cheese, then baked

The following tart, I sliced the zucchini, diced the tomato and onion and spread it over a pie crust with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. I wrapped it up like a torte, and baked it.

For the rest of the shells, I filled with a sundried tomato, onion, oregano, garlic, basil and egg mixture. They didn’t leak a much out of the bottom.
