Number of Servings: 1

A, 1/2-pound frozen
puff pastry sheet
1 Scallions, white and pale
green parts only
Sliced thin
about3/4 cup
1 Tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter
1 Pound(s) Asparagus, trimmed and cut
diagonally into
slices reserving
3 Eggs
A, 3 1/2-ounce log
soft mild goat
cheese such as
1 Cup(s) Milk
3/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Tablespoon(s) Finely chopped fresh

On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into a 16-inch square
and fit into an 11-inch tart pan with a removable fluted rim. Roll a
rolling pin over top of tart to trim pastry flush with top of rim.
Chill pastry shell while making filling. Preheat oven to 425F. with a
baking sheet on lowest rack. In a small skillet, cook scallions in
butter with salt to taste over moderate heat, stirring, until
softened, about 1 minute, and cool. In a steamer set over boiling
water, arrange asparagus slices and top with reserved tips. Steam
asparagus, covered, until crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes, and
drain well, reserving tips separately. In a blender, blend eggs, goat
cheese, milk, and salt with pepper to taste. Add tarragon and pulse
custard to combine. Spread scallions and asparagus slices in pastry
shell and arrange reserved tips decoratively on top. Pour custard
slowly over vegetables. Bake tart in pan on heated baking sheet in
oven 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 375F. and bake tart until set,
about 8 minutes. Transfer tart in pan to a rack. Remove rim of pan
and serve tart warm or at room temperature. Serves 4-6 as a Luncheon
or Supper Entree;8 as a First Course. Gourmet April 1995 Converted by
