Story
** The recipe says 1/3 cup of sliced olives, I find this too much and use 12 olives only one for each tart. *** I used pre made frozen puff pastry squares. Don’t let them thaw out too much otherwise they will be more difficult to handle. See accompanying video.
These mushroom olive and herb tart are a great companion on the go. They keep well and taste good at room temperature or even cold. Watch the video for recipe details and one thing is for sure, whether you are travelling or not, you have to make it once you see them come out of the oven, they are simply irresistible.
