You can make this quick and easy appetizer even when you are short on time. The flavor is entirely in your hands as there are a plethora of goat cheeses available. We especially like garlic and chive-flavored Monterey chevre in this tart. You and your guests will enjoy the rich cheese and herb flavor accompanied by a pleasant crunch from the pastry shell.

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
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. 
  2. Whisk together cheese and eggs. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Arrange pastry shells on a baking sheet and place a heaping teaspoon of cheese filling into each cup. 
  4. Bake until puffed and golden, about 15 minutes. 
  5. To brown the tops further, place under the broiler 1 to 2 minutes, but watch carefully to prevent burning.
  6. Serve hot, while still puffed (they will deflate a bit, but are also delicious cold). Garnish with fresh chopped herbs.


chopped fresh chives, thyme, or parsley
