Quantity: 6

Size: 4-inch tartlets


Dough Ingredients:

2/3 cup tapioca flour

2/3 cup sweet rice flour

2/3 cup sweet sorghum flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup nondairy cream cheese

6 tablespoons vegan butter

1/4 cup plain nondairy milk

Filling Ingredients:

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

6 vegan, gluten-free hot dogs, chopped into 1/4 inch chunks

1/3 cup sauerkraut, drained

1/4 cup yellow mustard


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and oil 6 4 inch tartlet pans. To make the dough, combine the flours, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum and baking soda in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and milk until smooth. Knead the two mixtures together until just combined.

To make the filling, sauté the hot dogs in the olive oil. Combine the mixture with the sauerkraut and mustard in a bowl.

Form 12 balls out of the dough. Roll to about 1/6 inch thick circles. Press a circle into each tart pan. Place about 3 tablespoons of filling into each tart. Place another round of dough over each and press to seal. Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly brown. Serve warm.
