Mushroom and Garlic Cream Tartlets

I decided to make this recipe for an appetizer on Mother's Day. They were a hit and everyone liked them, especially my mom. I thought of her immediately when I saw this recipe and knew she would love them. Sure enough she did. An excellent recipe and a real must try the next time you have a get together!

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (8 oz) fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1. Heat oven to 350°F. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, flour, onion and garlic; mix well. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender. Add cream and cheese; mix well. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until most of liquid has evaporated.
2. If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough into 2 long rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut into 2 long rectangles.
3. Cut each rectangle into 12 squares. Place 1 square in each of 24 ungreased miniature muffin cups. Firmly press in bottom and up sides of cups, leaving corners of dough extended over edges of cups. Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon mushroom mixture into each cup.
4. Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with parsley. Cool 5 minutes. Remove tartlets from pan. Serve warm. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tartlets.


  1. mmm mmm mmm! This sounds delish!

  2. Anything is delicious when topped on a croissant dough crust! These look wonderful and I know they'd be addictive too!

  3. These sounds delicious! I wish more people in my family liked mushrooms.

  4. These look divine! A perfect little app!

  5. I recently made 112 of these for my husband's holiday party and they were a HUGE hit! I did add some extra cheese since I had them on hand and they were AMAZING. Everyone loved them and few of his co-workers asked for the recipe. I had to serve to serve them at room temp since there was no way to heat them before serving and they were still AMAZING and my husband who had nibbled on some right from the oven actually preferred them at room temp! I have to admit that they are also addicting straight from the fridge cold as I had some that way too! Thanks for the recipe, it was a total hit!!
