A favorite recipe gets a new shape! I posted this LAST February when I fixed this for a book club lunch. This year, I gave it a new shape in my heart-shaped tart pan. This peppery dough makes one of the tastiest savory crusts I've ever had! It really does melt in your mouth, and no mixer or other equipment is necessary.
The crust can be made ahead and don't forget to chill the dough TWICE (the dough before rolling out, and again in the tart pan).
The filling is quick and easy! I just zapped the asparagus for 3 min. in the microwave.
I may have used a wee bit more than the listed 1 cup of gruyere too (where is that guilty face emoticon?)
I had enough dough and filling for an extra mini tart to bake and freeze (and take to work for lunch on a LONG Monday).
We enjoyed half of our tart for a quick dinner with a citrus salad.
