  • Weekend Refreshment ~ Tomato Tartlets

    tomato tartlets recipe    

    It's almost tomato season and this appetizer is the perfect way to enjoy it.  These little treats are great when you're entertaining or just have fresh tomatoes around.   Cheers to the weekend with these cheesy little bites!  

    (Ps.  I'm guessing they would pair nicely with a glass of bubbles.  Just throwing that out there... wink, wink.)

     Tomato Tartlets


    All-purpose flour, for rolling

    1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

    2 1/2 ounces grated sharp white cheddar (2/3 cup packed)

    3 medium tomatoes, cut into ten 1/4-inch-thick slices

    4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

    Ground pepper

    1/3 cup small basil leaves, for serving


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees, with racks in upper and middle thirds. Lightly flour a rolling pin and work surface and roll out puff pastry to a 14-by-16-inch rectangle. With a 4-inch cookie cutter, cut out 10 rounds and transfer to two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets; with a fork, prick each round all over. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cheese on each, leaving a 1/4-inch border, and top with 1 tomato slice. Brush with oil and season with pepper.


    Bake until pastry is deep golden at edges, 25 to 30 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let tartlets cool completely on a wire rack. To serve, top with basil.
