Fig And Gorgonzola Tarts
These fig and gorgonzola tarts are a huge hit whenever I take them to parties. They always seem to be the first appetizer to disappear.
1 7oz. bag of dried figs
1 8oz. package of cream cheese
4oz. crumbled gorgonzola cheese
60 phyllo shells
Black Mission Figs 8 oz – $7.09
Preheat your oven to 350º F.
Put the dried figs in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until coarsely chopped.
Add the chopped figs, cream cheese, and gorgonzola cheese to the bowl of a mixer. Mix on medium speed until combined.
Place the phyllo shells on two baking sheets. Spoon the filling into each shell. Bake at 350º for 10-15 minutes. Remove the tarts from the oven, and transfer them to a cooling rack.”
Makes 60 tarts.
Note: You can find the phyllo tart shells in the dessert section of the freezer at your local grocery store. They typically come in packages of 15, so you’ll need 4 packages.
