1 sheet frozen puff pastry (half of a 17-ounce package), thawed

All-purpose flour, for dusting

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature

1/3 cup sour cream

1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon sugar

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives,

plus more for topping

12 ounces assorted small heirloom tomatoes, halved


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Unfold the puff pastry onto a floured piece of parchment paper and roll out into a 9-by-11-inch rectangle. Score1/2 inch in from the edge, all the way around, using a paring knife. Slide the pastry (on the parchment) onto a baking sheet. Poke the middle all over with a fork, then bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a large bowl and beat with a mixer on medium speed until smooth; stir in the chives. Spread evenly over the cooled crust. Arrange the tomatoes on top; season with salt and pepper and top with more chives.
  3. Customize this tart with your favorite toppings. For our cover, we added grilled corn.
