Asparagus Gruyere Tart

Submitted by: CLAVERRIERE


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Flour, for work surface
    1 sheet frozen puff pastry
    5 1/2 ounces (2 cups) Gruyere cheese, shredded
    1 1/2 pounds medium or thick asparagus
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    Salt and peppe

Tips

This is a lovely first course but the cook time for the puff pastry is too long. 35-40 minutes will result in overcooked; tough or burned puff pastry. The first cook time is 10 minutes and the second should be 10-15. Of course this means blanching the asparagus, but it is worth the extra step.


Directions

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a floured surface, roll the puff pastry into a 16-by-10-inch rectangle. Trim uneven edges. Place pastry on a baking sheet. With a sharp knife, lightly score pastry dough 1 inch in from the edges to mark a rectangle. Using a fork, pierce dough inside the markings at 1/2-inch intervals. Bake about 6-8 minutes.

Remove pastry shell from oven, and sprinkle with Gruyere. Trim the bottoms of the asparagus spears to fit crosswise inside the tart shell; arrange in a single layer over Gruyere, alternating ends and tips. Brush with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Bake until spears are tender, 20 to 23 minutes.
