Food for your Fête: Goat Cheese Tarts with Leeks & Apricot Preserves

Leave a comment

Tasty tarts.Where there are little kids, their parents are sure to follow. What does this mean for your pip-squeak’s party? Be sure to have some food options that will appeal to the grown-up palate.

These tarts are the perfect mix of elegance and taste. The sweetness of the apricot preserves, paired with the savory goat cheese and sauteed leeks and the flaky crust, will have your big-kid guests begging for the recipe. Not to mention, you can use just about any round-ish shaped cookie cutter (we used a flower cookie cutter here) to help tie-in your party’s theme.

We found the recipe here: http://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture/Food/Stir-It-Up/2011/0511/Goat-cheese-tarts-with-leeks-and-apricot-preserves

Our tips: You want to serve these hot or warm at the least; have them prepped on your baking pans and stick ’em in the fridge until you’re ready to bake them, that way you can serve them to guests nice n’ toasty. And make more than you think you need; they will get devoured and fast!

I'm Jenna Bryson and I'm the "queen butterfly" and lead expert performer at Papillons Entertainment, a children's special event company. I've been working with children for 13+ years and still get a thrill out of making kids happy. I'm also a classically trained actor with a B.A. from Univ. Maryland (Baltimore County), a budding children's book author (see 'Grace from Outer Space'), wanna-be comedy improvisor (graduate of Upright Citizens Brigade L.A.), and actual singer-songwriter. My music has been heard in feature films, promos, and on shows such as 'Hellcats', '90210' (the new series), 'Life Unexpected', and 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'. My debut album, 'make/believe', is available on all major internet retailers.
