Olive and goat cheese tartlets recipe
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
