About this Recipe

Crispy, flakey, cheesy and rich, this tart is the perfect way to start any party. I like to use a blend of different mushrooms. My favorites are shiitake, beech, cremini and maitake mushrooms. Try using at least 2-3 different types of mushrooms to achieve more complex flavors. You can also substitute Emmental, fontina or Comté cheeses in place of Gruyère. This is a multi-step recipe. The mushrooms are first cooked using 2 trays at the same time. Then puff pastry is covered with cheese, mushrooms and herbs before baking. Puff pastry gives the tart it’s flakey texture and buttery flavor. I used a Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheet for this recipe. Cut into six pieces for an appetizer-sized portion, or cut into smaller squares for hors d’oeuvres. Serve with Champagne, a crisp sauvignon blanc or a juicy pinot noir.
