An opinionated blog beginning with advice on how to create the ultimate French sauces
Intro: This Cheese and Mushroom Tart is an appetizer that is nice start to a meal because it offers the earthy flavors of mushrooms and the creaminess of cheese inside of a flakey and buttery pastry dough. Sound familiar?
It should, because the cheese and mushroom tart shares some key similarities and differences with my last blog's Fruit Tart.
The pastry dough recipe is first and the cheese and mushroom filling follows it.
A quick reminder. When making your tart shell make sure to keep your counter well-floured (to prevent the dough from sticking to it) and the dough well chilled (to make it easier to handle).
