Asparagus & Gruyere Tart

Spring cooking doesn’t get more simple than this gorgeous asparagus tart. Store-bought puff pastry means putting this together is a cinch- and fresh, in season asparagus makes for a special April treat. I hear all the time from home cooks that they are intimidated by working with doughs and crusts. If that’s you… don’t fret! Puff pastry is one of the easiest, most forgiving doughs. Simply thaw in the fridge and roll out. The crust puffs up beautifully around the edges and is buttery and scrumptious beneath the cheese and asparagus.

Ingredients
 

  • 14 ounces frozen puff pastry, preferably all butter
  • ¾ pound asparagus, tough ends snapped off
  • 4 ounces gruyere cheese, grated (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 1 ½ ounce parmesan cheese, grated (about ⅓ cup)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Let the puff pastry thaw in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours until it can be rolled out. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • On a floured surface, roll the puff pastry into a rectangle about 12 x 16. You can trim the edges if you’d like a more finished look, but don’t worry too much about precise measurements. Place the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, score the dough 1” from the edge all the way around, being careful not to cut all the way through. Prick the interior all over with a fork.
  • In a bowl, mix the cheeses with the rosemary. Cover the bottom of the dough with both cheeses up to the edge of the score mark to create a crust. Drizzle the asparagus with the oil, season with ¼ teaspoon salt, and lay horizontally over the dough. Crack some fresh black pepper over top, then place in the oven. Cook 30-35 minutes, until the pastry is golden. Remove from the oven, transfer to a large wooden cutting board, and serve.
