French Fridays with Dorie – Tomato-Cheese Tartlets

by Jessica on August 3, 2012

Tomato-Cheese Tartlets from My Baking Heart

I first made these in October of 2010, when I participated in a Virtual Birthday Party for Ms. Dorie. And even after two years, they’re still the perfect, delectable little appetizer. For one, it’s an absolute cinch to put them together. There’s minimal baking time for the puff pastry, and after topping with pesto, sliced crisp tomatoes, soft mozzarella and fresh basil, they’re ready for presentation (with a little drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, of course). Easy peasy!

I love the very Italian look of your Tomato-Cheese Tartlet – a very delicious, pretty and fresh “look”. Just wonderful!

Just beautiful, Jessica! We loved these, too, and will definitely make them again. It will be a Dorista secret how easy they are to make!

Looks lovely and delicious. Next time I plan to try it with goat cheese to taste the different flavors and maybe
pesto instead of tapenade. Great job and lovely photos.

It looks like we had similar interpretations…only yours are pretty! lol. I think I will still be making these years from now. A surprisingly lovely way to feature any homegrowns I’m lucky enough to get this time of year.

Good Grief your tarts are so perfect! If I didn’t love your photography so much I’d be deeply jealous. Thanks for setting the bar so high. Can’t wait to take up the challenge and try again!

They look so lovely! I’m going to have to try these again, with the proper presentation. I used some mozzarella that I’d grated for another recipe, but the sliced version is so much prettier on this tart.

Yes, I agree, easy peasy. Pretty though and they make a nice food presentation for a simple lunch or supper or appetizer. I made your Bisquick cookies for my granddaughter’s visit last week. Easy peasy for me and she loved them. (As did I, unfortunately.)
