3-Ingredient Cream Cheese & Cherry Pepper Bites
Need a super-easy holiday-party hors d'oeuvre? These tasty little cream cheese and cherry pepper tartlets come together in a snap, thanks to premade pie dough, which is pressed into a mini muffin tin to make the tart shells--then all you have to do is fill the cups with cream cheese and chopped cherry peppers. Chopped herbs add a nice hit of color, but these are just as tasty as-is. Consider making a double batch--these bites are sure to go quickly.
Tips: Look for prerolled pie dough (usually a package of 2 crusts) in the refrigerated case at the grocery store. If you have time and enjoy making pastry, you can make your own crust.
Look for red and/or green mild (or sweet) cherry peppers in jars near the pickles and olives or at the "olive bar" in well-stocked supermarkets and specialty-food stores.
Equipment: Mini muffin tin (24 cups); 2-inch biscuit cutter
