  • Sprinkle each pastry crust with 1 teaspoon flour; place floured side down on a lightly floured surface. Cut 12 circles from each crust, using a 2-1/2 in. round biscuit cutter. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray; set aside.

    I made this recipe when I catered an hors d'oerves and wine reception. They were a huge hit. Served about 150 people and got raving reviews from all. There were none left!

    These are very tasty and everyone I have made them for loves them. Instead of the pie pastry, I used pre-made tart shells which worked great and saved even more time preparing them!
