I love simple recipes that are fancy enough for guests. To get a velvety texture in this tart, I use creme fraiche, but sour cream works, too. —Veronica Callaghan, Glastonbury, Connecticut

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. On a work surface, unroll pastry sheet; roll to a 12-in. circle. Press pastry onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 11-in. tart pan with removable bottom. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  2. In a large skillet, cook beef and shallot over medium heat 5-7 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up beef into crumbles. Remove from heat.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, sour cream, salt and pepper until blended. Stir in cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes, chopped basil and rosemary. Stir into beef mixture; pour into tart shell.
  4. Bake on a lower oven rack 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is set. Just before serving, add toppings as desired. Yield: 16 servings.
Editor’s Note: To toast nuts, cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

"This was very good. I don't have a tart pan, but I still had good results using a springform pan."
