Roasted Red Pepper & Olive Tapenade Mini Tarts ♥

I'm sooo fascinated by the ways food bloggers reign in their cooking possibilities.

For example, the classy Cream Puffs in Venice works from a different cookbook every month. Her choice for June, she announced, is the savory'n' sweet tart-muffin-soup-salad all-around inspiring cookbook Once Upon a Tart. I knew it well, as it was a gift from a dear friend awhile back. But it was in pristine condition: no spills yet!

Hmm ... maybe Cream Puffs would like to cook together? She did! and so much she suggested inviting others with the same cookbook to join our little party!

So say 'hello' to Egg Hunt and 'bonjour' to French Toast! We're all cooking the same tart today! (Just look at Cream Puff's magnificent tart! Buff up your French right ici, I mean here! The others may not be up yet, I'll add them as they come online.)

Well ... sort of.

For party reasons, I converted the designated nine-inch tart into two dozen mini tarts. The results were good but not likely reproducible. So I'm leaving the recipe to the others ... well, that is, except for the pastry which was so good that I also used it in this delicious spinach and feta quiche and recommend it highly, especially made with the semolina.

NEXT TIME ... and there WILL be a next time, I'll follow the recipe! Because as you'll see from the others, it's one great tart.

FROM THE ARCHIVES ... Like veggie tarts? Me too! There's a growing collection here in the Recipe Box.

    Those tartlets are gorgeous. And I know I could eat them all myself in one sitting!
