Re-style – Once you’ve got the hang of this recipe, transform your tart for a special occasion with Donna’s simple ‘re-style’ tips:

Fold over handheld snack, fold over the tarts before baking for 14 – 16 minutes. Serve with the toppings on the side.

Bite-sized finger food, make the tarts on rectangular thin flat breads. Cut into small squares and bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Serve with a little of the topping on each square.
