    Makes: 8 mini tarts

    • 1/2 sheet puff pastry
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1/4 pound mushrooms, sliced
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
    • 4 teaspoons finely chopped fresh parsley

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Lay puff pastry out on a lightly floured surface and cut into 8 squares. Prick the squares in several places with a fork. Place the puff pastry squares on prepared baking sheet.
    3. Bake the puff pastry squares for 7 minutes. Remove tray from the oven, flatten the squares using the backside of a spatula. Return puff pastry to the oven to bake until golden brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven.
    4. Meanwhile, melt butter in a skillet over high heat. Cook and stir the mushrooms and garlic in the butter until mushrooms are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat.
    5. Top the baked puff pastry squares evenly with the mushroom mixture. Crumble goat cheese over mushrooms and sprinkle with parsley.

    If you don't have goat cheese, feta is a rather tasty substitute.

    This was a great, quick and super easy recipe! After I put the cheese and parsley on it, I put it back in the oven for a short time to soften the cheese. I will definitely make these again...expecially for a party!  -  04 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were delicious and easy to make. The only thing I would do different next time is cut the puff pastry into smaller pieces to make them bite size. Also I'd like to try different cheeses or a mixture of cheeses.  -  13 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Well, this was an adventure for us. I have never had goat cheese. Just couldn't quite bring myself to use goat cheese. I used the feta. As usual, I made two batches. The first one exactly as written and a second time with some changes. The isntructions are pretty simple andwe really enjoyed them. The second time I made them I added some onion, a little garlic powder and a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil & Garlic seasoning. All said both versions were quite tasty and would like to have them again.  -  12 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
