Week 22: Tarts - asparagus onion gruyere tart

I don't have a tart pan so I wanted to make something free-form. Martha Stewart to the rescue! Her asparagus gruyere tart seemed perfect but I wanted a bit more flavor so I added some lightly carmelized onions.

First I cut up four walls walls sweets and put them in a pan.

I didn't fully cook them down cause I wanted some texture from the onions.

As those cooled I prepared the pastry dough by thawing and rolling it out. I then scored a square about 1inch around the edges and poked the center with a fork.

As it baked I shredded the gruyere.

I baked the crust to a nice golden brown.

I layered the onions first.

Then added the gruyere.

On to I put the asparagus making every other one up and down. Because my baking stone is square I ended up with some room at the bottom and so I put more asparagus across the bottom and basted it with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

I baked it all for about 25 minutes and took it out when a fork could pierce the asparagus.

It was fantastic. FANTASTIC.
