How to make tarte au fromage:
Using a food processor, pulse the flour, butter, and salt until it has a coarse, sandy texture with a few pea-size bits of butter remaining. Stir the cold water into the flour mixture just until the dough pulls together into a shaggy ball. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 2 hours, or until it is cold.
Preheat the oven to 400F. Divide the dough in half and roll each piece into an 4-inch by 6-inch oval shape, building up the edges slightly, on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Spread the crumbled cheese over the surface of the dough. Bake the cheese tarts for 12 to 18 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and cheese browns a bit and bubbles.
This cheese tart recipe makes 4 to 6 servings.
