Caprese Tart with a Balsamic Glaze

It’s fall and whilst everyone is delving into warm, comforting recipes with pumpkin and apples I’m making a cool, light Caprese tart. What’s up with that?

I’m also loaded with a cold. Most people take home a miniature Eiffel Tower as a souvenir from their trip to Paris. Not me – I picked up a cold instead. I never was one for convention. Even though it’s fall and I have a cold, it’s still 85-90°F outside. I want to snuggle up in bed with duvets but it’s too hot for duvets. I’m craving soup, but it’s too hot for soup.

So since I couldn’t have soup, I came up with a light and fresh comforting dish that would help me survive the heat. Crisp, buttery pastry topped with fresh tomato and basil, slathered with a balsamic glaze and covered with ooey-gooey melted cheese is certainly comforting. This tart is good warm out of the oven, at room temperature and chilled, making it a great appetizer to serve at parties that you can prep way before hand.

In other news – look at my new WordPress site! It’s still far away from being complete – at the time of typing the recipe and foodie fun pages are still blank – but I’m getting there. I’m doing all of this solo, so please bear with me!
