How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 375°F.  Stir the mayonnaise, sour cream and black pepper in a medium bowl.  Add the spinach, artichokes and crabmeat and mix lightly. 

Step 2

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the pastry sheet into 3 (2 1/2-inch wide) strips.  Discard the remaining pastry.  Cut each pastry strip into 4 (2 1/2-inch) squares, making 12 in all.  Press the pastry squares into 12 (1 3/4-inch) mini muffin-pan cups.

Step 3

Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons crab mixture into each pastry cup.  Stir the bread crumbs, cheese and oil in a small bowl.  Sprinkle 1 teaspoon bread crumb mixture over each filled pastry.

Step 4

Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Top each with 1 sprig parsley before serving.

    Great little appetizer

    These are good and look nice too! I used refrigerated flakey biscuits, the kind that have layers that you can peel apart. Cutting the pastry sheets into strips seemed like too much trouble. I used one or two layers for each one. The Panko bread crumbs make a good crunchy topping.

    Spinach, Crab & Artichoke Mini Tarts

    "Discard the remaining pastry" - Are you crazy? I wouldn't waste a bit of this wonderful pastry. Brush it with melted butter, sprinkle it with sugar and cinnamon, cut it into squares or strips and bake.
