1 10x14-inch tart


  • 1 sheet Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed

  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus

  • 2 ounces prosciutto, cut into thin strips

  • 1 cup shredded fontina cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cook's Note:

Thaw pastry sheet at room temperature for 40 minutes or until it's easy to handle.

Editor's Note:

In our baking series "Bake No Mistake," our host Liz explains that par-baking the puff pastry ensures the pastry can fully puff and crisp before adding the toppings. After Step 3, she docked the pastry with a fork, and par-baked it in the preheated 400 degree F (200 degree C) oven for 10 minutes. Once the crust was cooled, she followed Steps 4 to 7 as directed above.
