Festive savoury tartlets

Makes 12

* 2-3 tbs chilli jam*
* 12 mini pastry tartlet shells*
* 150g soft, herbed goats' cheese
* 12 cherry tomatoes, sliced
* 12 small basil leaves, to serve

1. Place a small amount of chilli jam in the base of each tart shell. Cover with goats' cheese, spreading smoothly with a palette knife. Place one or two slices of tomato on top, sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper and garnish with a basil leaf. (Serve soon after making or the pastry will soften.)

Notes & tips
* These mini pastry tartlet shells are wonderful to have on hand for Christmas drinks. Other fillings could include caramelised onion and goats' cheese; a soft chicken liver pate; or simply pesto. They are also great served sweet with either mincemeat or lemon curd.
*Chilli jam is from Asian food stores. We used tartlet shells from Skycrest. See p 230 for stockist details.
