I made these for Christmas Eve as our veggie. I used the 4 1/2" tart pans and a smaller 3" for my granddaughter. As an accompaniment it would have been better if all were made the 3" size. Really good flavor. A little time consuming to make but great for presentation. You can also do this as a quiche size as well for a brunch dish.

Place each dough circle, plastic wrap side up, into a 4-inch round tart pan coated with cooking spray. Remove remaining plastic wrap. Press dough into bottom and up sides of pan; fold excess crust back in, and press. Pierce bottom and sides of dough lightly with a fork; freeze 10 minutes. Line bottoms of dough with foil; top with pie weights or dried beans. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack 15 minutes; remove weights and foil. Brush crusts with mustard.

Add garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Stir in porcini mushrooms, wine, and thyme; cook 1 minute. Add reserved 1/4 cup soaking liquid, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat; cook 3 minutes. Stir in parsley, juice, pepper, and salt.
