Ingredients

Dough

  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1 oz cream cheese cut into squares
  • 1 medium egg beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour

Filling

  • 1 cup spinach cooked
  • 1/4 cup Feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 medium egg beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 190C/370F degrees.

Make the Dough

  • Place the mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl. Cook in the microwave for 60 seconds. Stir and zap for another 30 seconds. If the mixture has not melted give it another blast in the microwave.
  • Stir well, and add the egg, almond flour and garlic powder.
  • Mix until you have a dough mixture. Don’t be shy about using your hands to mix the dough. If it feels too sticky, add more almond flour.
  • Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill the mixture.

Make the Filling

  • In a bowl, mix the spinach, Feta & Parmesan cheese together.
  • Add the egg, garlic powder, salt & pepper and mix thoroughly.

To Assemble

  • Roll out a quarter of the dough in between two sheets of parchment paper to about 1 cm thickness.
  • Cut out shapes for the base. I used a large star cookie cutter to cover a 24 cup mini muffin tin but you could cut out any shape you want. The main thing is that the shape will allow a small groove to spoon the mixture into.
  • Lightly grease the mini muffin tin with olive oil.
  • Gently place the star shapes into the mini muffin tin, pressing the centre down to make a small well.
  • Spoon the mixture into the wells.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until golden.

Notes

You might have some dough left over, depending upon the shapes you cut out.   I made 24 mini tarts using a mini muffin tin and a small star cookie cutter.  
Coconut flour can be used in the Fathead dough to replace the almond flour.
