Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Pie dough: In a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the cold cubes of butter and cream cheese and cut in with a pastry knife or your fingers until a fine crumble is made. Add the buttermilk and gently work together, until the dough just comes together. Form the dough into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Once the dough has chilled, roll out onto a lightly floured surface until 1/8 inch thick.
3. Lay and gently press the dough into a 4”x14” fluted tart pan and prick the bottom all over with a fork. Chill the tart shell for 30 minutes.
4. Place tart shell onto a baking sheet and par-bake for 15 minutes. Allow shell to cool for 10 minutes.
5. Filling: Place ricotta, mascarpone, parmesan, breadcrumbs, marjoram leaves, and egg into a large mixing bowl and stir together. Add the remaining ingredients and fold together until well combined.
6. Pour filling into par-baked tart shell and place tart into the oven. Lower the temperature to 375˚F and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cooked through and crust and top is golden brown.
7. Finish with a light sprinkling of salt and pepper and allow tart to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into pieces and serving.
