Cheese and Tomato Tarts

    30 minutes

    These are really easy crowd pleasers. They can be served hot and then the flavour changes when they are served cold, I can't decide how I like them best. Depending on how many moulds you use depends upon your yield. for example one sheet of pastry will give you 12 little tart cases.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 sheet shortcrust pastry (I cheat and use store bought)
    • 12 slices cheese
    • 2 large tomatoes
    • pepper

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Using a cookie cutter cut out rounds of shortcrust pastry and place in a fairy cake / cup cake mould tin. I wipe each mould with a little butter or marg, but that isn't essential.
    2. Slice some cheese and place a slice inside each shortcrust lined mould.
    3. Slice up the tomato and place a slice on top of each bit of cheese in the short crust mould.
    4. Sprinkle with a little pepper.
    5. Cook in a hot oven (200 degrees) until cheese is bubbly and pastry is cooked-about 10-15 minutes.
    6. Eat warm, or for and different kind of flavour, eat cold.

    Something else. I used some finely grated parmesan cheese under the cheese slice, to give more flavour.  -  09 Feb 2010


    Made it healthier. I made the shortcrust pastry with a margarine with 60% fat, which saved a little fat compared with using butter.  -  09 Feb 2010


    I found this recipe very easy to make. I made the pastry myself, with a reduced fat margarine, to save a few calories! I used edam cheese, which can be a bit bland in baking, so I added some finely grated parmesan under the cheese slice. I shall definitely use this recipe again and again! Thanks Gumdrop!  -  09 Feb 2010
