Herb and Cheese Mini Quiches

Ingredients
2
3 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1/4
2
eggs, beaten
1/2
cup half-and-half, light cream, or milk
1/4
cup finely shredded Gouda or Havarti cheese
2
tablespoons pine nuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
1
tablespoon snipped fresh tarragon or 2 teaspoons dried tarragon, crushed
1
tablespoon snipped fresh chives
1/8
teaspoon cracked black pepper
 
Roasted red pepper, finely chopped
 
Snipped fresh chives

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. For pastry, in a large bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in the flour and Asiago cheese until a soft dough forms. Press 1 rounded teaspoon of the pastry evenly into the bottom and up the side of each of 48 ungreased 1-3/4-inch muffin cups.
  2. For filling, in a medium bowl, stir together eggs; half-and-half, light cream, or milk; Gouda or Havarti cheese; pine nuts; tarragon; the 1 tablespoon chives; and the black pepper.
  3. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon of the filling into each pastry-lined muffin cup. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool slightly in muffin cups. Carefully remove from muffin cups; place on a wire rack or serving platter. Top with chopped roasted red pepper and additional snipped chives. Serve warm. Makes 48 mini quiches.
