    gemini08's Note:

    Hot, savory tarts known as "croustades" are a first course specialty of Sunday farmhouse lunches in France. They vary with the region, the family recipe and the season. They all have one thing in common, though, they start with "paté brisée", the pastry dough for the shell. Use a tarte form with a removable bottom for easy unmoulding. Cooking time is chilling time.
