      To make the pastry: in a food processor combine 3 cups of flour, sugar and salt until on/off turns. Add fennel and process for 30 seconds. Blend in 1 cup of butter (broken into pieces) using on/off turns until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add eggs while machine is running and mix just until dough comes together.

      Wow! Tasty and fattening! But a treat! I did use frozen pie crust! I used 3 leeks which was 4 cups sliced. I soaked in cold water to remove all the sand then towel dried. I added crushed fennel seeds to the leeks when cooking. Loved the slight anise flavor thoughout this. I do suggest skipping the saffron (expensive) it does get lost in this tart. There is no way 10 tomatoes can fit on the tart unless they are very very small. I used 4 and you can see in thepictures it was plenty! I can`t wait to make this with summer home grown tomatoes.
