Mini Sparkenhoe Red Leicester Cheese Tartsdelicious morsels of light, flaky, puff pastry, filled with onion marmalade and topped with vibrant, melted Sparkenhoe Red Leicester cheese. Resulting in the perfect party canapé.


If frozen remove the pastry from the freezer and allow to thaw in the fridge overnight.

Cut the rind from the cheese and finely grate.

Unroll the pastry and cut into 5cm/2″ squares.

If your mini muffin tin is not non stick then spray with a little oil.

Place one pastry square on to each mini muffin hole and press gently so that it dips in and forms a cup.

Add 1/4 teaspoon of onion marmalade to each pastry square.

Place 1 teaspoon of finely grated Sparkenhoe Red Leicester cheese on top of the onion marmalade.

Snip over a sprinkle of fresh chives.

Place the tin in the middle of the preheated oven and bake the tarts for 10-12 minutes. They are baked when they are risen, golden and full of bubbling, melted cheese.
