Tomato and Mozzarella Puffs

Share

These Italian inspired Tomato and Mozzarella Puffs are so simple to make and the ingredient combination is delicious too. Juicy sweet cherry tomatoes combined with creamy, salty mozzarella cheese, topped with the punchy flavor of torn basil leaves. What’s not to love?

They couldn’t be easier to make either. Start by rolling out the pack puff pastry and use a pastry cutter to stamp out 12 discs. Place each disc in a 12-hole tart tin. Roast cherry tomatoes. Bake pastry cases with torn buffalo mozzarella. Once the mozzarella is melted, remove the tarts from the oven and spoon over the roasted tomatoes. Serve with freshly torn basil leaves.
