Tomato tart with gruyere cheese... oh wow!


Yesterday was Farmers Market here in South Pasadena and i always get a little too excited when i see fresh produce. A stand with fat juicy tomatoes got my attention. I was sold. While walking home i was thinking of a recipe that would include my tomatoes and remembered a tomato tart recipe my mom makes.
The name “tart” sounds all sweet and pretty and dainty. This, is not. It will knock your socks off. I changed my moms recipe a bit and i would say that its better, but just a tad better.

I made my own pie crust and I highly recommend making your own if you have the time. It  may seem intimidating, but the more you make your own the better and more comfortable you become with the process. trust me on this – making your own dough is really easy once you stop over analyzing and just go with how the dough feels and acts for you in the moment. okay this kinda makes me sound crazy, but read your pie dough, see where its at, add more flour if needed or water if needed- you will get the hang of it! Practice makes perfect. For the complete recipe click here and as always enjoy!
