Mixed Mushroom Tartlets

I summer in northern Michigan and find the morels that grow wild up there just irresistible, but never pick mushrooms if you are not 100% sure they are safe to eat. If morels are not available, I use whatever mushrooms I can find at the supermarket. If you like crumble some goat cheese over the top. The tarts can be used as a vegetarian entree or an appetizers.—Jennifer Condreay, Centennial, Colorado
