First, you grow some scrumptious heirloom tomatoes. Then you pick ’em ripe. After that, you put them in doubled-up dough with dijon, herbs and cheese, bake, and then cram it in yer piehole and make contented animal noises. Hello, summer.
It looks a little sumthin like this:
Jenn’s Tomadough Tart Recipe
Tart dough (I doubled this because I like a thick dough):
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 rounded cup of flour
Put the butter, water, oil, and sugar in an oven-safe bowl and bake on 410 for 15 mins. until butter starts to brown on edges. Pull from oven, pour in flour, mix and put into tart pan to cool for a few before forming around pan.
I then cooked the dough at 375 for 15 mins. and let it cool completely before adding the filling.
As many tomatoes as will fill your tart. I know this is vague, but I used four different sizes of tomatoes for mine. I did three layers and that took one large, four medium, two small, and then six cherries. Do what feels right for you.
**Be sure to put your sliced tomatoes out on a towel and salt them to pull the water out of them. You can do this while the dough is cooling.
6 ounces of good goat cheese (you could use mozzarella if you prefer)
Pecorino romano, freshly grated
Fresh chopped herbs (I used scallions, thyme, and basil from my garden, but feel free to use whatever spices you like. Tomatoes go with most any of them.)
Dijon, enough to coat the bottom of the tart
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Coat the bottom of the cooked/cooled tart dough with dijon–a layer as thick as you would put on a sandwich. Then add your first layer of tomatoes. Tops with some of the herbs and a sparse sprinkling of grated pecorino romano cheese. Next layer of tomatoes and repeat with the herbs and cheese. Add the final layer of tomatoes, top with the goat cheese and any herbs you may have left. Pour the olive oil all over the top of the tart.
Bake at 425 for 30 mins. on the middle rack. Watch it so the cheese on top doesn’t brown too much.
Take it out and allow to cool for the flavors to meld and so it doesn’t fall apart when you cut into it.
