Herbed Goat Cheese Tartlets

goat cheese tarts
Sam Jones/Quinn Brein


1-1/2 cups soft herbed goat cheese
2 large eggs
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
30 prebaked phyllo or puff pastry shells, thawed


Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together cheese and eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange pastry shells on a baking sheet and place a heaping teaspoon of cheese filling into each cup. Bake until puffed and golden, about 15 minutes. To brown the tops further, place under the broiler 1 to 2 minutes, but watch carefully to prevent burning.

Serve hot, while still puffed (they will deflate a bit, but are also delicious cold). Garnish with fresh chopped herbs.

I can't make it hold together to put it on a baking pan. It just crumbles and falls apart. I followed the recipe exactly. What did I do wrong?

We are not sure what you mean. The shells will hold the mixture. Are the shells falling apart?
