      These were a hit. I used jalapeno pepper jelly. 200 degrees celcius is 390 farenheit. Mine baked for 13 minutes. It took me forever, it seems, because I only had one small tart pan! Delicious! I think I will try them with some fig preserves.

      I just loved these little treats. I filled mine with green pepper jelly - colorful and tasty both. I plan to make these at holiday-time using both red and green hot pepper jellies. And since cheese and apples are such a classic pairing, I think apple jam or jelly would be good in these, too. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, Bokenpop! Derf's photos made me want to prepare it. :) Lynnie
