* 1 cup all purpose flour
* 6 Tablespoons ice cold butter
* dash of salt
* 3 Tablespoons ice cold water
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
* 2 oz Ile de France Brie
* Honey ham thinly sliced (5 pieces)
* 1 Tablespoon Dijon honey mustard
* Use a pastry blender to mix the flour, salt, dill weed and butter together. As the mixture begins to look crumbled, add a little cold water and continue to mix.
* Add water until the flour mixture becomes slightly moist and then add an egg yolk and continue to mix it with your hands.
* If the flour mixture is too wet, add a little more flour. The mixture should be slightly dry when you finish mixing it together.
* Place a piece of plastic wrap on the counter to use under the dough while you roll out the crust.
* Make sure you put a little flour on your rolling pin and on the plastic wrap first, and then start to roll out the dough.
* You should roll it out until it is the size of a dinner plate.
* Spread the mustard in the middle of the rolled out dough with the back of a spoon.
* Leave about 2 inches around the sides without mustard. Place the ham in the circle over the mustard, and then put the thinly sliced brie on top of the ham.
* Use the plastic wrap to lift the edges of the tart and enclose the mixture.
* You will want to fold it in about 2 inches and leave the middle open.
* Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet.
* ift the plastic wrap and the tart and put it in the middle of the baking sheet.
* Carefully roll the plastic wrap away from under the tart until you have the tart on the baking sheet.
* Brush the tart crust with egg white before baking.
* Bake on the middle rack of the oven at 425˚F for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
* Remove from the oven and let the tart sit for at least 5 minutes before you take it off of the baking sheet. Serve warm.
