I wasn't too sure about this tart the day I went to bake it but I was eager to try out the rich pie dough crust. The ingredients are quite simple: scallions, walnuts, gruyere, eggs, milk, cream, salt, pepper and a touch of nutmeg. I must say I quite liked this tart. I love gruyere cheese and the walnuts and scallions mix perfectly with it. Its simple tasting- in a really really good way. It seems a perfect comfort food tart.
This crust is my new favorite! I love that Nick has us make dough in a food processor. Yes, there is some washing involved, but so much less angst than any other pie dough making from my past. This rich pie dough crust will be my standby from now on. The rolling was still messy, but I know a good part of that is inexperience on my part with rolling dough. I'll get better. Look at that gorgeous crust!
