  • 1 recipe No-Fail Tart Crust

  • ¼ cup pine nuts

  • 1 ½ pound assorted cherry tomatoes, halved if large

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 ounce goat cheese, crumbled

  • ½ cup pitted green olives (such as Castelvetrano)

  • Fresh oregano leaves

No-Fail Tart Crust

  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup butter (1 stick), cubed

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 3 tablespoon ice water


  1. Prepare No-Fail Tart Crust as directed, except at the end of Step 3 sprinkle dough with pine nuts; press into crust.

  2. Increase oven temperature to 400°F. In a large bowl toss tomatoes with olive oil, oregano, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Transfer to baked crust. Bake 15 minutes. Top with goat cheese and olives. Bake 10 minutes. Sprinkle with oregano.

No-Fail Tart Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. (For nonstick pans preheat oven according to instructions on package.) In a food processor pulse flour, butter, and salt 10 to 20 seconds or until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Do not overprocess.

  2. In a small bowl whisk together yolks and the water. With processor running, add yolk mixture. Stop as soon as dough just starts to come together, about 5 seconds.

  3. Crumble to distribute evenly in an 11×8-inch rectangular tart pan or 11-inch round pan with removable bottom; press into pan. (Or gather dough into a ball; flatten. Roll out dough between two pieces of parchment paper into a 12×9-inch rectangle. Transfer dough to pan. Press into corners; trim excess.)

  4. Using a fork, prick dough all over. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake 12 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350°F. Remove foil. Bake 8 minutes more or until pastry is golden. Let cool completely. Use baked crust to prepare seasonal tarts.
