12/28/18 O&A NYC FOOD/HOLIDAY BRUNCH: Shrimp And Goat Cheese Tarts

Shrimp and Goat Cheese Tarts! An elegant and delicious appetizer for any party. Puff pastry rounds topped with tomatoes, feta, and tomatoes. Simple yet so delicious!

2 sheets 1 package Pillsbury Frozen Puff Pastry, thawed
4 ounces quality garlic and herb goat cheese
1 cup cherry tomatoes diced
1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme
20 cooked shrimp tails cut off
1/2 cup diced green onion

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine tomatoes, thyme, and green onion. Stir until combined. Set aside.

2. On a floured surface, unroll puff pastry (already thawed according to package instructions) sheets.

3. Cut each sheet into 5-6 circles (I used the top of a cocktail glass to make my circles). Place the circles onto the baking sheet.

4. Using a sharp knife, scour the edge of each circle about a half inch in. This will allow the pastry to bake up around the toppings.

5. Top each circle with 1-2 tablespoons of the tomato mixture, depending on the size of your circles. Stay within the scoured lines.

6. Top with a slice of goat cheese, about 1/2 inch thick.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Pastry will begin to puff up but will not yet be browned.

Top each tart with 1-2 shrimp and continue cooking for another 5 minutes, or until shrimp is warmed and pastry is completely cooked. Serve warm or cold.
