Slightly less fussy than Jamaican hand pies

But just as good. These are Julia Child’s French cheese tartlets (recette ici). You still have to make and roll out dough which I don’t like so much but at least you just fill the little mini muffin crusts from the top and don’t have to egg wash and pinch them together like you do a hand pie.

Julia’s recipe is sort of easy if you have crème fraîche on hand. I made one batch with crème fraîche and then another but I used sour cream instead. There was no difference at all. I also used some paprika for no real reason since it has no taste. I added chopped muffuletta to some, and olives and capers, bleu cheese to still others.

All of them were really really good.
