These mini pastry tartlet shells are wonderful to have on hand for Christmas drinks. Other fillings could include caramelised onion and goats' cheese; a soft chicken liver pate; or simply pesto. They are also great served sweet with either mincemeat or lemon curd. (Serve soon after making or the pastry will soften.) * Chili jam is from Asian food stores.
- Place a small amount of chili jam in the base of each tart shell.
- Cover with goats' cheese, spreading smoothly with a palette knife.
- Place one or two slices of tomato on top, sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper and garnish with a basil leaf.
