  • 1 batch of easy flakey pie dough or store bought puff pastry
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 small box cocktail tomatoes
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme minced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of milk in a bowl


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sautee the garlic in olive oil over medium-high heat for just a minute until it’s fragrant, then add in the tomatoes and thyme and sauté for 30 seconds more
  3. Remove from the heat and allow them to cool.
  4. Roll out the dough into 1/8th thickness and use a round cookie cutter about 1 1/2 inch in diameter to cut out circles of dough.
  5. On a standard size muffin pan, place about 4-5 pieces of tomatoes at the bottom of each cavity and arrange them so they don't overlap.
  6. Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of feta cheese on top of the tomatoes and make sure the cheese doesn't sink to the bottom of the muffin pan as it may burn during baking.
  7. Take a circle of the dough and press it firmly on top of the tomatoes and feta.
  8. Brush the tops of the pie dough with the egg wash and sprinkle extra fresh thyme.
  9. Bake for 15-18 minutes until the pie crust is golden.
  10. Remove the muffin pan from the oven and wait 2 minutes for them to cool down.
  11. Use a small spatula, plastic knife or spoon and gently lift the tarts out of each muffin cavity and flip them upside down on a plate. Serve.
