Easy to make appetizer... you can keep jarred Tapenade around, so you could make this last minute. Tapenade is just an "olive spread" of chopped olives.

How to Make Olive Tapenade Puff Pastry Mini Tarts


  1. Preheat oven to 425 deg. F.

  3. Place each square in a greased muffin cup (use more than one pan).
  4. Coarsely chop tomatoes. Mix tapenade and tomatoes together, and fill each muffin cup evenly with some of the mixture. Top each evenly with some of the shredded cheese.
  5. Bake at 425 deg. F. for 12-15 minutes, until they are puffed and golden brown and cheese topping is bubbly and melted.
  6. Remove from muffin cups and serve!
