Red Caviar Tartlets Appetizer Recipe
- 8 oz (240 g) unsalted butter, melted
- 3-5 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 large egg, beaten
- all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons red caviar
In mixing bowl, combine melted butter and 3-5 tablespoons of sour cream. Mix well and gradually stir flour in small portions.
Knead the dough until smooth- so that it no longer sticks to the hands and the table. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour.
After an hour take out the dough and roll sticks layer. Then cut out circles of dough the size of molds.
Lightly grease the molds with butter. Put the circles in molds, press to the floor and walls, and then pierce in several places with a toothpick or small fork. We recommend saving the form tartlets, fill them with peas.
Preheat oven to 428 F (220 C). Arrange the molds on a baking sheet and put in the preheated oven. Bake tartlets for about 10 minutes. They should be lightly browned. Remove from the molds baked tartlets, take out the peas, then leave to cool baskets. Spoon red caviar over tartlets.
