A tomato tart is a nice summertime celebration of the tomato.

An elegant brunch item which can be made ahead. And though it looks special, it is easy to make since it is a basic tart shell with cheese and tomato.

  • food processor
  • tart pan



  • Brown about 60 grams of butter and allow to cool until solid before starting the tart. This can be done days ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator.
  • Put 90 grams of the flour in the food processor and reserve the rest. Add the sugar and pulse once or twice.
  • Slice the 85 grams of butter and the 54 grams of browned butter into 1/4 inch pieces and add to the flour and sugar in the food processor.
  • Process until the dough starts to look like large cottage cheese, about ten seconds.
  • Scrape down the bowl, add the rest of the flour and the maple syrup and pulse a few times.
  • Put the flour mixture into a bowl.
  • Combine the bourbon and water and sprinkle over the flour mixture.
  • Using a spatula, press the mixture together.
  • Press the mixture into a compact, 4 inch disk wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for an hour, or overnight.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll it out between two pieces of lightly floured parchment paper until it is about 1/8 inch thick and will fill the tart with a little overhang.
  • Transfer it to the tart pan. Work it down into the shape of the pan without stretching the dough.
  • Refrigerate the tart for an hour or overnight. Roll the rolling pin over the top of the tarts to cut off the excess dough.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Peel, core, and slice the apples and arrange in circles in the tart with each slice overlapping.
  • Mix flour, sugar and cinnamon together and spread over the apples. Cut the butter in pieces and distribute over the top of the tart.
  • Sprinkle sugar over the top.
  • Bake until light brown and crisp, about 30 minutes.
