I've been asked if I can prepare these so that they're gluten free. Finding gluten free pastry hasn't been easy... I found that C***s carries a line of gf pastries but, of course, no store near me stocks it. :(   One store (about 20 minutes away) has the gf short crust  but not the puff pastry.   Are there any thoughts as to how this substitution might work??

I can't see why not GF, I used to make tiny quiches with shortcrust pastry.  I have no experience with gluten free pastry though, what it tastes like or how it cooks up but it must work or they wouldn't sell it surely?

My DD uses a GF pastry from Coles to make egg and bacon pies in the pie maker.  Works perfectly, though the pastry is a little hard to manage as it is softer.  Grandson 14y loves them.  She puts them into the freezer, then later he thaws one in the microwave for a min, then puts it into the airfryer to heat up.  He is very happy.

Thanks Judy and Kayc... Not long after I posted the question one of the stores rang back and said they'd found the puff pastry.  Drove up to store,  bought the pastry, back home and baked the tarts for that afternoon.... Would you believe after all that the gf people didn't  turn up!! ;D (there's a lesson in there somewhere!)

Anyway, the other two trays (along with the gf tarts) were hastily consumed by all the other guests .. it really is an amazing recipe!! Thanks again, Judy, for the conversion... It's perfect!!

I don't know if this a new range but if anyone else is looking for gf pastry this is the one I found at Coles.  ... There are also gf pizza bases and short crust pastry....

Just made these for a little buffet party we're going to. I used very small muffin tins and the result is wonderful. They look very good and taste even better. Thanks so much for this recipe. It will be a regular in my kitchen now. Great for nibbles before a dinner party too. I don't like feta, so used grated cheddar instead . Yummy,yummy,yummy!

Perfect timing Judy since I was planning to make it as a flan for lunch on Wednesday when I have some friends coming over. One of my favourite recipes!

Wow, Judy! These tarts are...

D E E L I C I O U S S S S !!

Made some for DS9's soccer get together this Saturday. Had a couple of technical issues though.

1. I used my mini muffin pan which has 4 cm diameter circle at the top. The 6.5cm pastry had some bits sticking up 😁

2. Two puff pastries could only give me 20 circles. Had to do some patching with bits of leftover pastries. How many circles can you get from each puff pastry?

One of my pans had 9 holes only. So I used a regular muffin pan for 2 of the tarts, which gave us a chance to try these tasty morsels 😋😋

Ohhh yum Bee.  I could pop one of them in my mouth now (even if I'm eating porridge at the mo)  ;D

Lovely photo BZB, glad you enjoyed them. My mini muffin pan has 24 holes which are 5 cm across and 2.5cm deep.  You will need to cut your circles smaller for the sized pan you have. Are you using Pampas pastry, it measures 23.5 cm square.
