Cheesy Mini Spinach Tarts

1 Comment 09 May 2013

ask the teenagers to help

This recipe is the appetizer version of the Sephardic Spanech (spinach) ou b’ Jiben(cheese) in which the spinach mixture is poured into a big pie shell or pyrex and baked.

I love to add these spinach and cheese delicacies to my Shavuot holiday menu every year because I know that adults and kids will gobble them up as they are waiting for the holiday lunch or dinner to be served.

Make sure the butter is softened at room temperature  before making the dough, and use your Cuisinart to whip up the dough in a flash.

p.s.You will always want to have  a batch of these spinach tarts bagged in the freezer for an unexpected guest. Serve with coffee and your brunch menu.

Adapted from the “White Deal Delights Cookbook.”

  • 13 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups flour
