Vegetable Ranch Cream Cheese Tarts-Joseph

Makes 30 tarts

Have you grown tired of staring at a sea of vegetables at your parties?  Don’t get me wrong, I have done many delicious vegetable crudités in my career and still do them, people love them.  This is a new twist on classic vegetable crudités, a bite size option that is perfect at all get-togethers especially  at parties where you want all your hor d’oeuvres passed or you simple don’t have the space for a large vegetable platter.  I’m sure that serving vegetables this way will entice your party guests … you might even get the kids to eat their veggies with this appetizer.   Now eat your vegetables or no dessert for you!
