Recipe Page: Heirloom Tart

When temperatures hit 100 degrees, it only makes sense to turn your oven on to 400 degrees to bake, right? Ha, OK, so maybe not, but that’s what I did over the weekend. I’ve been hitting up our local farmer’s market every Saturday and buying more heirloom tomatoes than I know what to do with…that is, until I found this delicious-looking recipe on Cup of Jo.


It’s astoundingly simple: All you need is five ingredients (puff pastry, fresh thyme, ricotta cheese, heirloom tomatoes and sea salt). Basically, just spread the ricotta on the puff pastry in a thin layer, sprinkle with thyme and sea salt and pop it on a baking sheet in the oven for 15 minutes. Then, let it cool, add the tomatoes (plus, extra salt and thyme) and serve.
