Just a very quick post...my eyes are already sleepy at 8:18 this Monday night.
It has been a busy day.
I've been wanting to make my annual Tomato Tarts...
and this afternoon I finally had a chance.
Then all of a sudden it was 8:00p.m.
How does that happen?
I use a recipe that I originally
found in Victoria Magazine many years ago.
It was from Olga, a chef and proprietor of a cute little place out in
Little Compton, Rhode Island.
She actually lived in a tent behind the shop on a farm (if I remember correctly). I always thought she (and her business) were the coolest. That shop isn't there anymore, but she does now
have a restaurant in Providence, Olga's Cup and Saucer.
I have a ratty old torn out page for a recipe, but I also found it here.
The original recipe IS NOT gluten-free....but
we only bake and cook gluten-free now due to our
daughter's Celiac Disease.
Crust has always been tricky.
Today I used a pie crust recipe from the Cup4Cup flour site, but mixed it with Pamela's Pancake flour because I didn't have enough Cup4Cup left.
I just added flour til the dough formed.
Then I chilled it and rolled it between parchment.
I chilled again for a few minutes.
I fold the extra dough in, which makes it so you don't have to trim the edges.
I also advise caramelizing the onions one day, and making
the next, unless you have a lot of time on your hands.
Mustard smeared on the crust, caramelized onions, cheddar, and fresh tomatoes with a drizzle of olive oil....what's not to love.
And just because I can't seem to post without including a garden beauty....here's my fading Dahlia captured in yesterday's rain.
