    | 1. Heat oven to 400. | 2. On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a circle a scant ¼-inch thick and about 10 ½ inches in diameter. Transfer it to a 9-inch tart pan. Pat into the bottom and sides and trim the edge so it's even with the rim. Freeze for 15 minutes. | 3. In a small bowl, using a fork, crumble the cheese and mash together with the milk, starting with ½ tablespoon, until the consistency is spreadable but still has some lumps. May need up to 2 Tablespoons. Set aside. | 4. Slice tomatoes about ¼-inch thick. Blot with paper towels to remove most of juices; set aside. | 5. Remove pastry from freezer. Bake until light golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool about 15 minutes. | 6. Spread the cheese mixture evenly over the bottom of the pastry. Cover with the tomato slices in a tightly packed single layer. Sprinkle with the pepper and thyme and drizzle with the olive oil. | 7. Bake until the crust is deeper golden brown and the tomatoes have collapsed, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let stand for 20-30 minutes before serving. | 8. To serve, gently slide a knife around the edges, then remove the bottom and place the tart on a serving plate. Cut into wedges and serve warm or room temperature. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
