Tiny Brie, Prosciutto and Chutney Tart Bites





Crispy, Creamy, Salty, Sweet.







I devised this little warm appetizer mirroring a favorite pizza topping ~ Substituting creamy Ile De France Brie for the Roquefort.








You can use premade phyllo mini shells, or make you own ~(I use premade from the freezer section, and crisp them in a 350*(F) oven.)




Place a 1/2-inch cube of Brie or Camembert cheese in each cup. Return to the oven for a few moments, allowing the cheese to melt.






Remove from oven, add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of something sweet! Your favorite fruit chutney, fig jam/spread, apricot jam, (a wee drizzle of flavorful honey or pure maple syrup, maybe?) on top of the melted cheese.




Form small, thin slices of prosciutto into rose shapes, placing one rose atop the cheese & chutney/fruit spread. (I make these while the cheese is melting in the tart shells in the oven and set them aside until the tarts are ready for assembly.)










Garnish with a small sprig of fresh thyme. Serve warm & enjoy!

  3. Oh, Mari...these are just beautiful. Gorgeous. And given the flavors involved, I'm 100% sure they're delicious. Wouldn't this be a perfect hors d'oeuvre for Mother's Day?

    Thank you for these...I have a feeling I'm going to just come back and LOOK at them once in a while.

  8. yum...several years ago the cheese person (have no idea if there is a name for that role) at wild oats shared some fig spread with brie...I've been hooked ever since. I've shared it with others and they think yuck and that always turns to yum...
