Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

Cook's Notes

Store between layers of parchment in an airtight container, up to 1 day.

Yes, made them for a garden party too and couldn't get people to eat any of the other food I made. Just delicious and not too rich/heavy, though they're far from health food! Came back to the recipe because I'm getting requests to bring them again... Highly recommended!

These were great! I made them for a garden party, made 20 of them, and they were gone in minutes - easy to make and serve.
