Recently I have been on a HUGE tart kick. Everything from sweet to savory to all in between. My tart obsession started when I received the stunning cookbook by Holly Herrick titled Tart Love. Guess what else is awesome about this book? It is photographed by the lovely and super talented Helene Dujardin aka: Tartelette. That’s all you need to know right?

I’ll hold on a moment while you add a few copies to your holiday shopping list and purchase a few for yourself. You need to have a copy this book. Really. Maybe two. One for your coffee table and one for your kitchen.

Today I am gonna talk up tarts and my reveal for September’s Secret Recipe Club! This month I was secretly handed the blog Adventures in All Things Food. There are lots of fun recipes over there but I was immediately drawn to her Rustic Tomato Tart recipe. Here is what “Owen’s Mom” says about her blog “From my vegetable garden, through my kitchen, to our table, for this SAHM it is all an adventure!”

It took me a few seconds to figure out what SAHM meant. Here is what I figure: it must be stay at home mom. She is in love with this savory tart and I thought it would fit right in with our topic of Tart Love!

Let’s divert back to Holly, her fabulous cookbook, pastry and Helene…..

These two gals are the super star team of this book, their chemistry shows itself on every page. They both live in Charleston, South Carolina. They both have amazing backgrounds in pastry. They both know how to combine flavors and textures perfectly. They both have lots of wit and southern charm (even though Helene is of course French!)

After receiving the cookbook I tweeted my excitement about it. The Twitter feed looked like this:

So of course I went all sassy on it.

As always, I see great cookbooks as brilliant canvases for me to create my own goodies in the kitchen. In this book Holly de-mystifies the art of the sweet and savory pastry crust. Her writing is simple, to the point and well thought out. You will feel the need to make tarts every minute. These pastries exude elegance, but in reality they are very doable. Besides, I love the fact that you can make stunning designs on the top.

Just so you know this is not a gluten free book, but you can easily swap out the crust with your GF version if needed as I did here. I am sure the sweet and savory traditional pastry crusts in the book are epic. Really.

You can also use the freshest of ingredients…

Tarts are perfect for all kinds of entertaining from showers to brunches, tea parties and more. Could you imagine bringing out a stunning Vanilla-Dipped Pear and Chocolate Tart (featured on the book cover) at your next family gathering? Please don’t wait until then. Make one for the weekend. You will be very glad you did……Holly also has recipes for pot pies, quiches and hand held pies in the book. *smitten*

A few recipes in the book to swoon you: Hearty Chicken, Fennel and Fresh Corn Pot Pies, Creamy Blue Crab and Salmon Quiche, Sage Green Apple and Aged Cheddar Tart, Salad Nicoise Tart. Here’s a few sweets: Deep Purple Fresh Cherry Pie Pockets, Coco-nutty Sweet Potato Tart and Peanut Butter Fluff and Chocolate Tart. Enough said, right?!

My sassy version of the Tomato Tart a la Margherita in the book has a gluten free almond crust (a la Roost and Elana’s Pantry) and I lightened up the toppings just a smidge. I also added a few dollops of Burrata cheese. My new favorite.

Have you ever had creamy Burrata? It is a fresh Italian mozzarella cheese with heavy cream. By the way burrata means butter in Italian. You need to know that. The outside “shell” of this cheese is mozzarella and the inside is a mix of the two. Take a look…….

What is your favorite tart recipe?

Do you like sweet, savory or sassy? I bet you like them all….I also bet you would love a copy of this book. Great news for you…..

Rustic Tomato and Cheese Margherita Tarts

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: One 9 inch tart

Serving Size: 6-8 servings

Rustic Tomato and Cheese Margherita Tarts

Ingredients

    For the Crust
  • 1 1/2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt
  • pinch of Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
  • Topping
  • 1 cup fat free Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 ounces Burrata Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
  • a pinch of cracked Black Pepper
  • a pinch of Garlic Salt
  • a pinch of Smoked Paprika
  • a handful of Cherry Tomatoes, sliced for decorating

Method

  • Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. In a bowl whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, garlic salt, and smoked paprika. Break apart any lumps. Add the olive oil and water, combine with a spoon. Put the dough on a work surface. Add thyme and knead the dough until well combined with your hands. Press dough into a 9 inch tart pan. Be sure to press it all the way up the sides and evenly throughout the pan. Put tart on a baking sheet and bake it for 10 minutes. Take it out of the oven and let cool to room temperature.
  • Prepare the filling: mix ricotta cheese with thyme, a pinch of the black pepper, garlic salt and smoked paprika. Evenly distribute it over the partially baked tart dough. Place burrata and tomatoes in a pretty design on the top.
  • With tart on the baking sheet, place in the oven for about 10 minutes until cheese is melted. In addition, you can also brown it by broiling on low for 4-5 minutes. Watch carefully if you choose to do this.
  • Notes
  • You can use rosemary or oregano instead of the thyme if you wish.
  • Feel free to experiment with different oils in the crust. I love the flavor that the olive oil adds. You can also use grape seed, canola or a nut oil would be wonderful. I would like to try this with walnut oil.
  • If you cannot find burrata cheese you can use goat cheese, feta or regular mozzarella.

Wow… you make me want to march downstairs and make me a tart! But alas, I have to go to work in 20 minutes. You know, when you asked what our favorite tart recipe was, I reached back in memory and realized I haven’t had one since I went gluten-free. Before I was gluten-free I LOVED minced meat (dessert) tarts. Oh, and my grandma’s butter tarts. Gosh, those things are delicious.

Reply

5 Marla September 26, 2011 at 6:27 am

Leanne, now you can eat tarts again…with this GF crust you will not miss the gluten at all. Just swap out the olive oil for a more neutral grape seed or canola oil. Your results should be spectacular!

@Kitchen Belleicious Thanks so much for your sweet words. Time management is very tricky especially now that the kids are back to school. I do what I can when I can.

I’m not a huge fan of tomatoes but love the cherry and grape varieties and all of their beautiful colors and shapes. This tart is the perfect use for them! I love tarts, both sweet and savory.

Reply

21 Marla September 26, 2011 at 6:15 am

So glad you stopped by Candy and thanks for your sweet compliments. A lot of folks who don’t like larger tomatoes often go for the grape and cherry ones. These taste especially good when heated in the oven…..on tarts!

Marla, beautiful pictures!!!! I made a mozzarella tomato tart last year around this time, and it might be one of my faves. Kinda similar to this tart. Im kind of loving savory tarts!

Julia, I have a new addiction to savory tarts as well. Though I think I will always have one of each (sweet and savory) on hand :)

24 susan September 26, 2011 at 6:14 am

the best tart that I made this year was a Chili Rellano Tart for cinco de mayo. it was so decadent and so cheesy that it won the hearts of both the young and the not so young. this book looks fab and with Helene’s eye – it is bound to be a sure fire winner.

Reply

25 Marla September 26, 2011 at 6:25 am

Susan, that sounds amazing. My hubs is after me to cook with Chile Rellano’s. A tart sounds like a fun way to use them. I bet all ages loved the ones you made for cinch de mayo.

I am still drowning in tomatoes from my garden. Lol. Glad you share a love of tarts. They seem to be an often overlooked treat.

I don’t believe I have ever had a savory tart – but I always vote savory over sweet and so I would have to guess savory would be more up my ally! I do love tart’s though (even sweet) because of the great crust you get with them! Always crunchy and good. Your SRC post blows everything else out of the water! lol, I need to up my game next month ;)

Hi Marla,

First I have to tell you, that you take the most gorgeous pictures! Do you think you could sub Almond Meal for Almond Flour? I have two bags to use up from Trader Joe’s! Or should I just grind up some almonds to make a flour?

Reply

51 Marla September 26, 2011 at 3:19 pm

Jennifer, go ahead and try that almond meal from TJ’s. Not sure if the result will really be any different. I think the only difference with blanched almond “flour” and TJ’s almond meal is yours might have the skins ground into it. Almond flour is essentially fine almond meal, with blanched skinless almonds. I hope that makes sense ;) Let me know how it turns out.

This is perfect timing! I’ve been wanting to bake more savory tarts for dinner, now that the weather is cooling down, it’s a perfect excuse to turn on the stove :) My favorite tart is anything with mushrooms, leeks, and cheese. If it has swiss chard in it, even better!

One of the best tarts I ever had was when I was in high school and my family went out to dinner to celebrate a birthday. All I remember is ordering the seafood tart. When it came out, the filling was almost like cheese cake, the crust was tender yet puffy, and the seafood was fresh and delicious. And everything melded perfectly!!

Reply

56 Marla September 26, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Cellabella, that sounds like one of the best things I have ever heard of. A seafood tart…must find me one of those, not to mention at a birthday party makes it even more fun!

That tomato tart looks gorgeous — my favorite is one made with thick slices of heirloom tomatoes, basil and goat cheese. It’s so simple — using a prebaked crust, either regular or GF, you just layer the tomato slices with slices of your favorite goat cheese, drizzle on some extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with chopped fresh basil, kosher salt and fresh pepper. Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes. If your tomatoes are too wet, salt them lightly and let them sit in a colander for 10 minutes before proceeding with the recipe.

I’ll be totally honest and say I haven’t had much experience with tarts. They kind of intimidate me. Not sure why. I make pie with no problems.

My favorite tart so far has been Tartes aux Bananes. It reminds me of my friend from Mauritius from whom I got the recipe. I have never made a hearty tart before but I think I will start with this tomato and cheese margherita tart. Your pictures scream, “Eat me” and I cannot resist…

That’s beautiful! Oh if I could still eat dairy. That cheese looks amazing.

I have a couple of favorite tart type things – one is a fresh black raspberry tart with a cream cheese & lemon base and a raspberry jam glaze. The other is technically a gallette, with roasted squash and goat cheese. I haven’t de-dairy-ed & de-glutened either. I should get on that, no?

132 Joanne September 27, 2011 at 4:06 am

I’ve become quite smitten with tarts lately also…with my favorite being a fig tart I made not so long ago. Absolutely delicious…though I think this one could give that one a run for its money!

We make a blueberry tart with a butter crust. Half the fresh blueberries are cooked in the tart shell, with some sugar and cinnamon. When the tart comes out of the oven, we press more fresh berries on top and serve with vanilla ice cream. Best of both worlds…cooked berries like a pie with fresh, juicy berries on top!
