Goat Cheese, Cherry Tomato & Herb Tarts

Goat Cheese, Cherry Tomato & Herb Tarts

Operation Empty Freezer continues! These parmesan pastry crusts had lived there for so long I don't even remember anything about the recipe. Ooops. Since the goat cheese-disliking contingent of the household is away for the long weekend, I filled them with a mix of Dijon mustard, grated parmesan, soft goat cheese and fresh herbs (oregano and tarragon, and a few leaves of basil) and topped with cherry tomatoes brushed with a bit of olive oil.

Goat Cheese, Cherry Tomato & Herb Tart

Sprinkle with sea salt and bake at about 175°C/350°F for 20 minutes, until the tomatoes are soft and crinkly and the cheese gets a bit of color. And don't try to eat them while hot. No-one likes boiling cherry tomato explosions in their mouth. Ahem.

What a wonderful recipe Denim. Goat cheese and cherry tomatoes, my favorite. I was thinking about a recipe to make for memorial day picnic, those tartelettes might be perfect.BTW, I made your humberger buns for mother's day picnic, I know I love picnics, and they were so gooood, moist and light. Gorgeous blog you have here. Thanks for sharing your recipes.

Very cute-looking pies! Plus you've just reminded me that I've got some unbaked small pastry cases in my freezer, waiting for the perfect topping..

Nabeela: they were almost too cute.

Village Vegan: me too! This was more about the pretty than the taste, or I'd have roasted them on their own for a bit beforehand (and probably deseeded them as well).

Ellie: thanks! I think so, too...

Rose: I'm so glad the bun recipe worked for you as well!

Pille: I've turned into the worst sort of freezer-hoarder. Potstickers, empanadas, Karelian passties...

This cannot have effect in actual fact, that's what I consider.
