Servings: 12 servings
- 1 sheet puff pastry thawed according to package instructions
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp water
- 1/2 lb asparagus white tips removed
- 8 oz brie rind removed and sliced
- 1.5 oz prosciutto
- balsamic glaze for drizzling
- honey for drizzling
Thaw a sheet of puff pastry according to the package instructions. Preheat your oven to 350º and have a large baking sheet ready. Cut a sheet of parchment paper large enough to cover the baking sheet, or use a silicone baking mat.
Unfold the puff pastry and lay it on the center of the parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll out the puff pastry until it is approximately 10in x 15in.
In a small bowl, beat the egg and water together. Brush the egg mixture over the puff pastry. You will not use all of the egg mixture - discard the remainder.
Cut the white tips off of the asparagus and discard them. Lay the asparagus evenly on the puff pastry. Remove the rind from the brie and discard. Slice the brie into approximately 12 slices and place then on top of the asparagus. Rip the prosciutto slices into several smaller pieces and scatter them on top of the brie.
Holding the sides of the parchment paper, carefully pick up the tart and place it on the baking sheet. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until the pastry has puffed up and is golden brown.
Remove the tart from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. Drizzle the balsamic glaze and honey liberally over it. Slice into approximately 12 pieces and serve.
