Method

  1. Preheat oven to fan 200C/conventional 220C/gas 7. Lay pastry on a floured work surface. Using a round 7.5cm round pastry cutter, cut out as many circles as possible.

  2. Sit them on oiled baking sheets and score a circle about 2.5cm in from the edge of each disc by pressing gently with a 5cm cutter. Pierce the middle of each with a fork, brush with egg and top with a little cranberry sauce or chutney.

  3. Slice the cheese 5mm thick so you have a slice per disc (discard end rinds). Lay a slice on each tartlet, then top with thyme leaves, a drizzle of oil and a twist of black pepper.

  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is golden and the pastry crispy. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm, garnished with rocket leaves.

That should have been 5 stars - don't know what happened there!

I have found an even easier and cost effective way to make these. I used vol au vent cases. Allow them to defrost slightly then remove the top layer (I made these into cheesy puffs for even more nibbles). Then just follow the recipe. They come out slightly smaller so you may need to use different cheese - I used a rindless goats cheese log which worked very well

Made these last year, for 2 christmas parties, they went down a storm and people are requesting them again this year. I dont usually cook and they are easy to prepare, plus they look & taste impressive.

i didnt use rocket and they were fine without.

Made these scrumy tarts for a Halloween party. Went down very well and will definitely be making them again during the more traditional festive season. I'll probably make them slightly smaller to give a more canape-like appeal but the goat's cheese and cranberry works extremely well together.

Trying to reduce preparation time I used ready made pastry tart shells but had bought sweet ones by mistake! I added a layer of onion marmalade at the bottom of the shells & all at the family Xmas party thougth they were marvellous. Noone noticed the wrong pastry - infcat tought it added to the mix of flavours when they were told of my error.

I made these on Christmas Even and then left some uncooked for nibbles on Christmas Day before lunch. They were extremely easy to make and tasted wonderful-they disappeared off the plate before they'd cooled down properly and even my father who is normally a bit difficult to please told me I can make them again!

Try this just using a full sheet of ready made puff then cut in squares its a lot easier and same result without a lid.great for a buffet.

Recipe worked well, great taste! Only, if you do make it the day before, the cranberry juices make your puff pastry a bit soggy. It doesn't puff up very well. Does not affect taste though!
