Sweet Pepper Garlic & Cheese Cups


  • 2 pie dough rounds
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup minced sweet peppers
  • 1/2 cup of shredded mozarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400 and grease a muffin pan.
  • Cut out six circles out of each pie crust round.
  • Gently place the circles in each muffin cup, not too deep in or the edges might fold in. Lightly press the ripples that are touching the sides of the cup (again, to help them not fold in).
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes, until golden brown. Take out the dough cups carefully and let them cool.
  • In a bowl, combine cream cheese, minced sweet peppers, cheese, pressed garlic and salt. Mix until all thoroughly incorporated.
  • Divide the cheese filling among the cups. Be gentle!
