tomato tarts

one of the many ways i used my abundance of fall tomatoes was to make tomato tarts.  these easy appetizers are quick to prepare and very tasty.
using frozen puff pastry sheets, thaw one sheet for about 20 minutes.  when thawed, flatten the dough and divide into 16 squares.  place on a parchment lined baking sheet and top with cheese.  i used goat cheese, but Gruyere or Swiss would be another great alternative.
next, add the sliced tomatoes to the tops of the cheese squares, and then season with shredded fresh basil. i also added Williams sonoma pizza seasoning, lightly sprinkled on the tops.  
bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  check to see that the pastry puffs, but does not burn.  these are great quick appetizers for last minute snacks to make and serve.
