Are you thinking about the Christmas menu? Well, these cheese and grape tartlets with Pedro Ximénez sauce are an excellent appetizer: they are easy and the combination of flavors of all the cheeses is sensational.

You can adapt this recipe to the individual format, as I bring it to you, or use a whole shortcrust pastry base and serve it as if it were a pizza, although for special events such as Christmas lunch or New Year's Eve dinner I prefer to serve it as is. how I bring it to you.

You will see that I used the Le Creuset muffin tin to bake them. This way I get the shortcrust pastry to have the shape I'm looking for so that later it will be easy for me to pour the sauce on top.
