Tomato-Pesto Appetizer Tarts is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As soon as I saw this I knew I wanted to try it. It looked simple enough and it was. It did take a little longer than I thought, but the end result was awesome. They looked better than in the picture and they certainly tasted fantastic. Everyone loved them and asked for the recipe. The dough was soft and moist and the tomato flavor was just right. A guaranteed winner.
