Nana Lee's Note:
Nice appetizer made from left over St. Paddy's Day ingredients. From Linda Larsen,Your Guide to Busy Cooks, in About.com. "I love this recipe for these individual little tarts. The creamy cheese, crisp-tender cabbage and sweet red onion blend so well with the corned beef and the flaky pastry. You can omit the corned beef entirely for a nice vegetarian entree."

- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2Prepare pie crust and divide dough into four pieces.
- 3Roll out each between waxed paper into 7" rounds.
- 4*If using prepared crusts, first roll to square shape, then cut each in half.
- 5Fit each into a 4" tart ring, or simply put the crusts on two cookie sheets. Set aside.

- 12If you aren't using the tart rings, just mound the mixture in the center of the circles of pastry.
- 13Divide the corned beef evenly onto the cabbage mixture.
