Goat Cheese and Sundried Tomato Appetizers

Our monthly cooking club met to honor the Oscars. We decided that everyone should bring an “Award winning” recipe. I happen to enjoy watching the competitive cooking/baking shows on TV and immediately thought of the Pillsbury BakeOff. I went to the website to find a recipe. I decided on this appetizer because I love goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes. This recipe won the BakeOff appetizers division in 2004 and is delicious. Everyone really enjoyed it.

I did use the new Pillsbury Recipe Creations instead of biscuits. I also didn’t read the directions properly and used a regular sized muffin pan instead of a mini muffin pan. So I just doubled the amount of filling it calls for.

Goat Cheese and Sundried Tomato Appetizers – from Pillsbury
1 (12-oz.) can Pillsbury® Golden Layers® Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits – I used the new Crescent recipe creations
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 oz. (1/2 cup) crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried onion flakes - I used onion powder
1 teaspoon dried pesto seasoning - I used fresh parsley
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 10 biscuits (I cut the dough into 12 pieces); separate each evenly into 2 layers, making 20 dough rounds. Press each in ungreased miniature muffin cup.

In small bowl, mix mayonnaise, goat cheese, tomatoes, onion flakes and pesto seasoning. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise mixture into each dough-lined cup. Sprinkle each with Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 375°F. for 10 to 16 minutes or until golden brown (Mine baked for exactly 10 minutes). Remove from muffin cups. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

I’m entering this in Joelen’s Tasty Tools event for April. She’s featuring muffin pans this month!

    So glad you’re starting to like goat cheese Steph – I live on it since it’s easier for me to digest than cow’s milk cheese.
