Recipe Description

Roasted red peppers, chives, lemon, garlic, and flaky pastry come together in these cheesy bites that bake in just 15 minutes.



Preheat oven to 375°F.

  • Cut cheese into twenty-four 1/2-inch cubes.
  • In a medium bowl, toss together the minced shallot, roasted red peppers, garlic, and oil.
  • Unroll crescent dough on a lightly floured work surface and press into a 12 x 9-inch rectangle. Cut into twenty-four 2-inch squares. Gently press each square into an ungreased mini muffin cup.
  • Divide red pepper mixture among crescent dough cups and top each with a cheese cube.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the cheese has melted. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with chives and lemon zest. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Tip: Substitute roasted red peppers with drained jarred marinated artichokes if desired.
