Jalapeno Palmetto Cheese Strawberry Tarts are a combination of sweet, creamy, spicy and delicious. If you prefer something not as sweet, the strawberry preserves and garnish can be replaced with pepper relish/jelly and a roasted or diced red pepper garnish.

Yield – 24 tarts (will depend on your pan size)
1 box – Refrigerated Pie Crust Dough or enough scratch made dough for a two crust pie
1 – 12 ounce tub Palmetto Cheese with Jalapenos (Original or Bacon can also be used)
1/2 cup Strawberry preserves
Strawberries for garnish

Step 1. Preheat your oven to 375F

Unroll the dough and cut into 2.5″ circles.  A small biscuit cutter can also be used to make your rounds.

Step 2. Place your dough round into the pan and press down to form the sides. We’re using a tart pan kit that we purchased from a kitchen store, but a small cupcake pan or small tart pans will work just as well. The end goal is to make mini pie shells. Adjust your rounds according to your pan size.
