Fresh Tomato Tarts Recipe

Fresh Tomato Tarts Recipes

Ingredients :

250g ready made puff pastry, defrosted if frozen

1 egg, beaten

2 tbsp pesto

6 plum tomatoes, sliced

salt and pepper

fresh thyme leaves, to garnish (optional)

Method :

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry to a rectangle measuring 30 x 25cm inches. Take care that you do not stretch the dough. Cut the rectangle in half and divide each half into 3 pieces to make 6 even size rectangles. Chill for 20 minutes. Using a small sharp knife, lightly score the edges of the pastry rectangles. Brush them with the beaten egg and arrange them on a baking sheet.

Spread the pesto evenly over the rectangles, leaving a 2.5cm border round the edges. Arrange overlapping tomato slices on top of the pesto. Season well with salt and pepper to taste and lightly sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves, if using. Bake in a preheated oven, 400F/Gas 6, for 15-20 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Serve immediately from warm plates.

Roll out the pastry to form 1 large rectangle. Spread with the pesto, and arrange the tomatoes over the top. These tempting tomato flavored tarts should be eaten as fresh as possible while the puff pastry is crisp and flaky.
