This is one of my go to appetizer recipes. My husband and I love the flavor, and the fact that it's quick and easy is just a huge bonus. I once started making this when our guests were pulling into the driveway, and I was ready to serve it once everyone was settled in.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg
    refrigerated pie crust, softened
  • 1/3 c
    coarsely chopped dates
  • 1 Tbsp
    dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp

How to Make Gorgonzola, Date and Walnut Tartlets

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 425. Unroll pie crust. Using a 2 inch cookie cutter, cut 24 rounds from pie crust, rerolling crust scraps. Gently press 1 round in bottom and up side of each 24 ungreased mini muffin cups.
  2. In small bowl, mix dates, brown sugar, cinnamon and walnuts. Spoon slightly less than 1 teaspoon into each cup. (I suggest a scant tsp to make sure you have enough to go around.)
  3. Break up any larger pieces of Gorgonzola cheese. Top each tartlet with slightly less than 1 teaspoon cheese. (Again, conserve).
  4. Bake 7 to 11 minutes, until bubbly and golden. Remove tartlets from pan to serving plate. Drizzle tartlets with honey. Serve warm, or at room temperature.
