Olive and goat cheese tartlets recipe

Yields 12-16

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 (6 ounce) can large black olives
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or basil
  • Flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry with the rolling pin three times in each direction, making the pastry thinner and larger. Using a 3-1/2 inch biscuit cutter, cut out 12-16 circles of puff pastry. Place the pastry circles on the baking sheet.
  3. In a food processor, add the olives, goat cheese and cream cheese. Pulse until well combined. Top the pastry circles with 1-2 tablespoons of the olive mixture.
  4. Bake until the edges of the puff pastry turn golden brown, about 15-18 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and top with chopped tomato and fresh herbs.
