Black Section Separator

Using frozen puff pastry, creme fraiche, Boursin, or cream cheese, and asparagus, this tart may be produced in minutes.    


– 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed – 8 ounce tub of creme fraiche (substitute mascarpone cheese, or Boursin cheese) – zest of 1 lemon – 1/2 lb thin asparagus, trimmed to about 6 inches long – maple syrup, for brushing (a few tablespoons) – sea salt – a handful of fresh herbs like thyme for a garnish, if desired.

heat oven to 400F Carefully roll the puff pastry into a 9x13 rectangle on parchment paper. that's slightly larger than the original, and don't worry about accuracy.

Step 1 


Move the dough on paper to a baking sheet. Form a frame by running a rough knife along the rectangle's edge an inch in. 

Step 2

Score the dough instead of cutting it. This will give your dessert a beautiful border when baked. Inside your border, cover with cream fraiche.

Step 3

Not all of the container is needed. Grate lemon zest on top. Put asparagus on the tart. Lightly coat asparagus and tart edges with maple syrup.

Step 4

Put it in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until it gets crispy and puffy. If you want, you can add thyme or another fresh plant on top.
