Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
- 2 (1.9-ounce) packages frozen mini phyllo shells
- ½ cup fig preserves
- ½ cup toasted walnuts
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
- 4 strips bacon, cooked and chopped
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 400°. Place phyllo shells in cups of miniature muffin pans.
In a small bowl, stir together fig preserves and next 4 ingredients; spoon mixture into phyllo shells.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, cook vinegar over medium heat until reduced to ⅓ cup. Let cool for 10 minutes; drizzle vinegar onto tarts. Serve immediately.
Cook’s Note: For the freshest taste, buy a piece of blue cheese and crumble it yourself rather than using packaged cheese crumbles.
