I found this recipe in one of my mother's old cookbooks from a church in Hawaii. It is very good and versatile.

so good. I used oyster mushrooms and sherry cooking wine. I also had an Italian blend shredded cheese.

I must admit that I was a little leery of the mushroom soup ingredient in this recipe. I am by far not an ingredient snob, but canned soups usually don't have a place in such an elegant little finger food. Here, it works. It works well. I made one pan of these for an appetizer / finger food party and used the remaining crust and filling to prepare 2 small custard dish sized tarts. Hubby snacked on one tart straight from the oven and raved. The mini bites were perfect on the buffet at our party. I will be making this recipe again. It is really a gem.

i made these a while back for a cookout. i did have to make a few minor changes due to a certain somebody not liking mushrooms and me being a vegetarian. i used condensed cream of broccoli soup in place of the mushroom soup and soy bacon in place of the real stuff. i then split the filling in half and used cauliflour in place of the mushrooms for a mushroom-free alternative. both types were easy to make and very yummy. the mushroom ones were a lovely dark brown color that looked quite nice along side of the light golden cauliflour ones. i had wanted to take some pictures to post(and bring some in to work to go with my lunchtime salad) but they were all devoured before i had a chance. guess i'll have to make them again ^_^
