Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 36


  • 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.
