This week's recipe started the month of August off easy.
The tartlets are so simple, especially using the puff pastry dough.
I rolled the dough according to the instructions from Dorie
and cut out four 6" rounds. I set the timer for 15 minutes but
after removing the top cookie sheet the rounds were not very
brown so I left them in the oven a few minutes longer.
Not wanting to waste the trimmings, I sort of rolled them
up and baked them also. Hubby saw them after they were
removed from the oven and out came the butter. These
little snacks were delicious.
The tartlets were covered with a layer of tapenade
and then slices of tomato and mozzarella cheese.
I planned to broil them for a few minutes so I held off
on the rest of the seasonings.
They turned out lovely, a little burnt, but tasty just the same.
I drizzled oil on top and added basil for the topping.
A word of caution to anyone using parchment paper,
it does not work under the broiler. It can catch on
fire very quickly if not watched carefully. (Perhaps I am the
only dummy that did not know this)
Hubby declared the tomato-cheese tartlets a winner and I have
to agree with him. I am adding a picture of the soup made with
the leftover barley from last week's recipe, which was absolutely
delicious. I am also adding a photo of our newest farm animal,
and unlike the rabbit, I don't think this one would make a great stew.
No recipes needed.....
I am posting Nana's results from a hotel room, as I have been on a
business trip all week. I look forward to getting home and trying this
one myself. Happy French Friday~
