Apple Streusel Muffins
   
  Ingredients:
   
*
1½ cups (225 g) Mina's Purely Divine All Purpose Baking Mix
*
½ tsp (3 g) salt
*
⅓ cup plus 1 Tbsp. (approx. 14 g) chopped fresh herbs, divided
*
½ cup (113 g) butter or margarine
*
¼ cup (56 g) cold water
*
1 cup (130 g) Parmesan cheese, optional
*
2½ pounds firm ripe tomatoes
 
Vegan Version:
*
1 cup of non-dairy, grated alternative type cheese in place of Parmesan Cheese and bake as directed below.
   
  Preparation:
   
  Cut butter or margarine into small pieces, set aside and keep chilled.
  Slice tomatoes in ¼ inch pieces and place in colander to drain excess liquid.
  Combine Mina's Purely Divine All Purpose Mix, salt and ⅓ cup chopped fresh herbs in food processor bowl
  Pulse 2 or 3 times to mix.
  Sprinkle with set aside butter or margarine. Pulse several times to create mixture that resembles small peas.
  Add water all at once and pulse, do not overwork at this stage. Tart dough will be ready when a handful binds together (see picture below)
  Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  Pour out mixture on a large sheet of parchment or wax paper.  Gather dough with your hands and form a round flat disc.
  Wrap paper around dough and chill for 15-30 minutes.
  Bring tart dough from refrigerator and open paper, cover with another piece of parchment or wax paper.
  Using a rolling pin, beginning in the center of the dough, roll outward. After each roll, turn the paper and roll again.
  Once you have a circle large enough to give an inch on each side larger than your tart pan, peel top paper away from dough
  Holding dough over tart pan, lay crust into the pan.  Peel last piece of parchment away.
  Dough may break, but that is ok. Gently press the dough into the tart pan.
  Using a fork, prick bottom of tart, trying not to go all the way through
  *Remember a crust doesn't need to be perfect, you can use extra dough to patch holes by just pressing into the pan*
  Bake crust for 30 minutes.
  Remove from oven and let rest for a few minutes.
  Sprinkle cheese (if using) over the bottom of the tart.
  Place tomato slices in a spiral design over the cheese.
  Sprinkle last 1 Tbsp. fresh herbs over the tomatoes.
  Return to oven and bake another 20 minutes.
   
  Serve warm or cold.
