Elegant Artichoke Cups


Yummm.. These dainty finger foods are a great recipe for a party or gathering. They look really fancy but are super easy to make and taste great. This is actually a new consultant recipe from Pampered Chef meaning all of the tools used to make it are in the starter kit. We made these at a "cook n' look" last week for people who are interested in the business and everyone had fun playing with all of the tools. Here is the recipe!:
1 Tbs. veggie oil
24 square wonton wrappers
1 can (397 g) artichoke hearts in water, drained & coarsely chopped
1/2 medium bell pepper
2 oz. (60 g) grated mozzarella cheese
1 oz. (30 g) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 lemon
2 Tbs. fresh chopped parsley
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, pressed
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place veggie oil in a small bowl. Place six wonton wrappers on cutting board. Lightly brush one side of each wonton. Press one wonton wrapper into a mini-muffin pan. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers. Bake 6 minutes or just until edges of wontons are light golden brown. Remove from oven to cooling rack, set aside leaving wontons in pan.
2. Meanwhile, coarsely chop artichokes, place in mixing bowl. Remove seeds from bell pepper and dice. Grate mozzarella cheese and Parmesan. Zest lemon to measure 1/2 tsp zest. Finely chop parsley. Add bell pepper, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, lemon zest, parsley, mayonnaise and pressed garlic to mixing bowl. Mix well.
3. Fill each wonton cup with about 1 Tbs. of artichoke mixture; sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese. Bake 8 minutes or until edges of wontons are golden brown and cheese begins to melt. Remove from oven to cooling rack. Remove wontons from pan; serve immediately.
