Mushroom Garlic Cream Tartlets

VMAS 2013. Rumors flying around of an Nsync Reunion. I had to be prepared. What snacks do you serve at a VMA viewing party where your childhood boy band is reuniting after 11 YEARS? My prayers were about to be answered. I was frazzled. I dug my old Nsync poster out of my closet put that up on the wall, and furiously starting making appetizers. I wanted to make something with pillsbury rolls cuz I always liked appetizers like that, so I searched the pillsbury website and found this. 

 

Ingredients

 

    2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    1 package (8 oz) fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1/2 cup whipping cream
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
      1can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, flour, onion and garlic; mix well. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender. Add cream and cheese; mix well. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until most of liquid has evaporated.
  2. If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough into 2 long rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut into 2 long rectangles.
  3. Cut each rectangle into 12 squares. Place 1 square in each of 24 ungreased miniature muffin cups. Firmly press in bottom and up sides of cups, leaving corners of dough extended over edges of cups. Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon mushroom mixture into each cup.
  4. Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with parsley. Cool 5 minutes. Remove tartlets from pan. Serve warm. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tartlets.

Heres how I felt about it: First off I didn’t use the parsley, cuz… eww. I thought it was a lot of work for just the few tartlets it made. One little pan of mini muffin tartlets. Definitely tasty, not worth to make for any kind of party because its so much work for such a small amount of product! I would recommend for a very small party where you feel like making a tasty appetizer.
