This tart tastes even better than it looks. Enjoy a recipe that makes good use of fresh cheese from the market.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (3/4 stick), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/2 cup plus 23 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Gruyere, grated
4 plum tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch slices and seeds removed
6 ounces Camembert, sliced into 1/8-inch strips
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 small bay leaf, finely crumbled
1 clove garlic, minced
1. Make the tart dough: Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, combine the flour, butter, salt and pepper until mixture resembles coarse meal. Using a fork, mix in 2 tablespoons of the oil and the water just until the bottom of the mixture begins to cling together. If necessary, add an additional tablespoon of oil. Gather into a ball, flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 30 minutes.
2. Bake the tart: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out the chilled dough into a 14-inch circle and place it into a tart pan; set aside. Spread the mustard over the bottom of the tart shell. Sprinkle the Gruyere evenly over the mustard and alternately place the tomato and Camembert over the Gruyere. In a small bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 cup of extra-virgin olive oil, all of the herbs, and the garlic together and brush two-thirds of the mixture over the tart. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 35 minutes. Remove the tart and brush it with the remaining oil. Serve warm.
