Tomato and Brie Tartlets

If you like easy and impressive, this one is for you! Crispy mini tartlets filled with juicy cherry tomatoes and creamy brie and provolone baked to a crisp.

Mini tarts are always fun when you have left over dough or just want to try something new without the commitment to huge portions.

I started making tarts in general because they made me feel like a winning baker in the kitchen. The crust is always simple and the filling is optional. Today I felt like making a simple tomato and cheese tart. Something about the crispy dough, salty cheese and juicy tomato really felt right today. I also didn’t feel like going the difficult route.

For this recipe I used pre made pie crust that come rolled and frozen. Its easy, consistent, and reliable. It also adds a hour and a half back into my day. Try these out and let me know what you think!
