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.
