The crust is a great buttery one with emphasis on the “flaky.” The actual filling is delicious, too. It’s a variation of a duchesse potato recipe and a bed of mushrooms on the bottom.
Make these for a party or just a family dinner. Everyone is sure to enjoy them. Now this recipe is very simple so try it out!
Step 1: Ingredients
To make the potato and mushroom filling, you will need:
- 2 small-medium red potatoes (both of mine together weighed 12.5 ounces)
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 1 tablespoon of milk
- 1 egg yolk
- 6 mushrooms
- enough water to fill a 1/4 of a saucepan
To make the crust, you’ll need;
- 1 stick of cold butter
- 3/4 cup of all purpose flour (plus some extra for the counters, the rolling pin and your hands :)
- 1/2 cup of cake flour
- 1/4 cup of cold water
- 1/2 tablespoon of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- olive oil for greasing the pan
When I made this recipe, I just filled a 12-cupcake pan with the recipe with pretty good sized tarts.
