Individual Caramelized Cherry Tomato Tarte Tatin

Sweet, juicy, flavorful, cherry tomato pastries. Perfectly ripe and caramelized with garlic and oregano, these beautiful little tomato tartlets are ridiculously tasty and deliciously moorish.

We ate these individually sized cherry tomato tarte tatin with some of our favorite English sausages – imported by our latest round of visitors, for a light lunch.

Even my girls – who ‘don’t like’ tomatoes were devouring these semi sweet treats. Mr 2 on the other hand was far too engrossed in the pastry to even check whether he needed to keep scraping the tomatoes off or not!

Makes 6 (great for 6 people as a starter, or 3 as a side dish)

– You’ll need a large muffin tray

 

For the filling:

20g butter

2 tsp sugar

400g (about 21) cherry tomatos

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 tbsp and 1 tsp white wine vinegar

sea salt

black pepper, freshly ground

For the pastry:

125 g flour sifted

a pinch of salt

70 g butter

2 tsp oregano

2-3 tbsp cold water

METHOD:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C / 400°F. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and put aside; crush the garlic clove and put aside.

2. Melt the butter in a heavy based pan; once melted add the sugar and stir consistently until it starts to brown slightly, then take the pan off the heat.

3. Add the cherry tomatoes, the garlic and the white wine vinegar, gently stir so the tomatoes are evenly coated, season with sea and pepper.

4. spoon the tomatoes into the muffin tray. You’ll need to arrange them a little bit to fit them in, about 7 halves per ‘muffin’ dish. The tomatoes need to lay flat, a thick layer is fantastic, but only a single layer. Divide any remaining liquid evenly over the tomatoes.

Now for the pastry:

5.  Combine the flour, butter, salt and oregano in a food processor until blended and crumbly. Add the cold water one tsp at a time until the dough is soft but not sticky.

6. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and cut out six circles slightly smaller than the size of your muffin dishes …You may only get four pieces initially, in that case, make a ball of the leftover dough and roll it out again to cut out the remaining circles.

7. Press the dough circles gently over the tomatoes, tucking in the sides as you go. Use a fork to poke holes in the dough so steam can escape.

8. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the dough is firm and has a beautiful golden colour. Let them stand in the tray for a few minutes then gently loosen the sides and them out ‘upside-down’ onto the serving dish.

 

 

Voila!

Delicious served warm.

  1. These look so good! I love cherry tomatoes and I try to grow my own every year.

    This will definitely go on my list of things to make, they’re be an amazing canape and I bet they’d look great as a large tart with a mixture of red and yellow tomatoes.

    Thanks for adding to #CookBlogShare

  2. Those look delicious!!! I will have to try to make them. I could not add the badge to my post for the life of me 🙁 am I the only one having problems?

  3. These tarte tatin sound so amazing. It’s never occurred to me to make them with tomatoes before. I must try these on my own two who ”don’t like” tomatoes (despite eating them in some form or other nearly every day!).

    • Haha, not a problem at all!
      There’s a classic pear version; a juicy apple one… Caramelized onions; zucchini… What do you fancy? 🙂

  4. Looks delicious. I may try to defeat my fear of pastry this weekend!!! And thanks for your kind comments over my way, and for being an excellent guest host.

    • Oh wow! Thank you.
      You should definitely knock that fear on the head 🙂
      …And this is a fantastic place to start; this one absorbs all the sweetness of the filling. You can’t go wrong!

  5. Love these an perfect since I’m just back from Cannes, thanks so much for hosting this for me. Head (and feet) are so sore today xx

    • Absolutely loved them for lunch…
      Mr M however was so taken back by the English sausages, that they were shifted a peg down the complement list 😉
