  • Process ricotta, goat cheese, eggs, and cream in a blender until smooth, about 30 seconds. Add chives, thyme, zest, salt, garlic, and 3 tablespoons of the parsley; process just until combined, about 10 seconds. Divide cheese mixture evenly among prepared lids. Bake in preheated oven until filling sets, about 25 minutes.

  • Transfer pies to a wire rack, and cool 20 minutes. Remove pies from jar lids. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1 tablespoon parsley. Serve warm or at room temperature.
