Artichoke & Cheese Tarts

This delectable tart is even easier to assemble if you make the artichoke-cheese filling in advance and thaw the puff pastry overnight in the refrigerator. Time-Saver: Substitute 1/2 cup shelf-stable grated Parmesan cheese for the freshly grated cheese. Make-Ahead: Prepare and refrigerate the artichoke filling up to 5 days in advance. Recipe from Campbell's Kitchen.

  • Yield: 20 servings ( Serving Size: 2 appetizers )
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Cook time:20 Minutes
  • Thaw:40 Minutes
  • Cool:5 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 8-ounce package(s) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup(s) shredded mozzarella cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 cube(s) freshly grated Parmesan cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 can(s) (about 14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup(s) diced roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 cup(s) chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 package(s) (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed

Preparation

• Heat the oven to 400°F.

• Stir the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl. Stir in the artichokes, red pepper and parsley.

• Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Place the pastry sheet onto a baking sheet. Brush the edges of the pastry with water. Fold over the edges 1/2 inch on all sides, crimping with a fork to form a rim. Prick the center of the pastry thoroughly with a fork. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet.

• Divide the cheese mixture between the pastries and spread to within 1/2 inch of the rims. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.

• Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown and the cheese is melted. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes. Cut each pastry into 20 pieces.
