These pretty hors d'oeuvres are perfect for holiday parties. And they're super-easy to make, thanks to premade pie dough. Simply press the dough into mini muffin tins to make tart shells, then fill with goat cheese and sun-dried tomato tapenade. (If you can't find sun-dried tomato tapenade, you can use sun-dried tomato pesto instead.) Chopped parsley is a pretty garnish if you're open to adding a fourth ingredient.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

  • Unroll pie crust onto a cutting board or clean surface. Roll the dough to about 12 inches in diameter. Cut 24 2-inch circles out of the dough with a biscuit cutter, rerolling the scraps if needed. Place the dough circles in the muffin-tin cups, gently pressing into the bottom and sides. Prick the dough with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the oven.

  • Add 1 teaspoon goat cheese to each cup, then top with 1/2 teaspoon tapenade. Bake until hot, 3 to 5 minutes more. Let cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley, if using.


Tip: 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.

Equipment: Mini muffin tin (24 cups); 2-inch biscuit cutter
