Mushroom Garlic Cream Tarts

"This is a recipe from l always have to double the recipe because they get eaten up so fast. People can't believe it only take 15 minutes to throw these little gems together. If you end up doubling the recipe, I suggest using just 3 Tbsp butter and 3/4 cup cream. Otherwise the filling can get a little runny. This is a very easy recipe to change according to your tastes. Substitute olives for mushrooms, use chives, chopped nuts, even artichoke hearts, whatever you like. I also generally use margarine, light cream and low fat crescent rolls and they're still delicious. You can't go wrong with this recipe. Enjoy!!"

  1. I made one batch with Parmesan and a second batch with feta cheese for a party. As good as the Parmesan ones were, the feta ones were over the top. I also used the garlic butter crescent rolls for even more flavor.
  2. These were very tasty. However, next time, I think I will use wanton wrappers or some sort of pastry shell as the crescent rolls made everything seem "soft."
  3. Terrific!
  4. Made these during Thankgiving, everyone loved them. So easy to make and very tasty and impressive in their cute little cups. Requested to make them for Xmas now. Thanks!
  5. These recieved mixed reviews. My son, daughter, and mother-in-law all loved them and were disappointed when they were all gone. My husband and father-in-law thought they were good but nothing special.
