Asparagus Custard Tart

This Easter my fiance's mom cooked everything for Easter lunch/dinner.  All she asked was I contribute a vegetable dish.  Who better to point me in the right direction than Martha Stewart?  I decided to attempt the asparagus custard tart.  I love asparagus and I love flaky crusts so it sounded like a winning combo to me.  You can find Martha's recipe here.  I followed the recipe to a "T".  Same ingredients, same cheeses, then only difference was I added 5 minutes at the end to set the custard a bit more.  It turned out so good!  Seriously yummy!

Wonderful flaky crust

1/2 cup each Goat cheese & Gruyere cheese

Asparagus tips tossed in olive oil

Custard in first

Then cheeses and topped with the tips of asparagus

Finished Asparagus Custard Tart
It had a lovely green shade, perfect for spring. Again, it was so delicious!  I'm sure this would be a great addition to any brunch or spring holiday meal.  It might even become an Easter tradition for me.
