SPRING is finally here! Are you loving these long and warm spring days? We’re finally in high 50°F!!!

It’s time to put away those chunky sweaters, and bring out flip flops. Yay!!! (Ok, maybe a little early for flip-flops around here…)

Anyhow… To celebrate spring let’s do some brunching, shall we?

I don’t know about you, but when it’s gloomy and cold, all I want is to stay in bed all day long. With breath-taking suspense novel and a hot cup of coffee. Did I mention, in bed?

BUT when it’s nice, and warm, and sunny, like today, I just want to burst out of the bedroom, have some friends over and share a delicious brunch with lots of mimosas and good ol’ laughter.

For me, spring is all about brunches. Bridal and baby showers, birthdays and anniversaries, Easter!! So many excuses occasions to throw some brunch parties .

And guess what? I have super easy, light and delicious, fancy-ish brunch tartlets for you today. These cute little tarts are filled with creamy mozzarella cheese mixed with sun-dried tomatoes. Talk about flavor punch!

Oh and speaking of cheese, this’s my 2nd cheesy recipe in partnership with Crystal Farms Cheese. (Remember the crowd-pleasing cheesy scalloped potatoes? Anyone have tried it?) I absolutely love all of their cheeses, and there’s nothing more exciting than working with brands that I truly love.

Back to tartlets…

As you know, I adore anything in small shapes, and that’s why I made little tartlets. But if you want to, you can totally make two big tarts. The taste won’t change from it. 🙂 The ingredients are few and simple, but just the right ones for a flavorful bite!

And I told you, these tartlets are quite easy to make, but as per usual, here’re the step by step photos.

Cheesy Brunch Tartlets

Light n’ cheesy, these little brunch tartlets are full of flavor. Sun-dried tomatoes, smoked salmon and ooey gooey mozzarella, all nestled in light and crispy tart shells.

Ingredients:

  • 2 puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons heavy (whipping) cream
  • ¼ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained
  • 8oz (225gr) Crystal Farms mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 4oz (115gr) smoked salmon

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C).
  2. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 18 circles from both puff pastry sheets. Then using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, score the pastry rounds in the middle to create a border, as pictured above. Make sure not to cut all the way through.
  3. Pierce the center of each pastry with a fork.
  4. Arrange them on 2 cookie sheets, lined with silicone mat or parchment paper.
  5. Brush cream on the border of each shell. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the pastry shells are puffed and golden.
  6. Meanwhile, chop sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces.
  7. In a medium bowl, combine chopped sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Mix until well combined.
  8. Divide the cheese mixture into tart shells and bake for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  9. Top with smoked salmon and serve warm or at room temperature.
