I love making appetizers using the frozen miniature phyllo tart shells. They come together in no time at all and make such a nice presentation. These little appetizers are always a hit every time I serve them!
Brie Leek Tartlets
1 medium leek, white part only finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
3 Tbsp butter
½ cup heavy whipping cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Dash of ground nutmeg
1 package (1.9 oz) frozen miniature phyllo tart shells
2 oz Brie cheese, rind removed
In a small skillet sauté the leek and garlic in the butter until tender. Add the cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg and cook and stir for another 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
Place the tart shells on a baking sheet. Slice the cheese into 15 pieces; place one piece in each tart shell. Top each with 1 ½ tsp of the leek mixture. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes or until the tartlets are heated through. Serve immediately. Leftovers can be refrigerated. Makes 15 appetizers.
