Honey Walnut & Brie Tartlettes

Even though I life in Illinois, I'm most certainly a cheesehead. I love cheese and couldn't imagine living life without it! Sweet or savory, I'll find a way to incorporate cheese into my daily diet... even if it's just a little taste. Brie cheese is a soft mild cheese that can be used in both sweet and savory applications. I recently enjoyed these Honey Walnut & Brie Tartlettes I made as a snack, which were also featured on my Mediterranean Grill party menu a month ago. Sweet honey, crunchy walnuts and creamy brie couldn't be packaged in a more delicious way...

Sweet and salty... creamy and crunchy...these differences all make for a great dish. For these Honey Walnut & Brie Tartlettes, I used prepared phyllo shells and filled them with ripened brie cheese which I then drizzled with a touch of honey and sprinkled some toasted walnuts. It's ridiculously simple yet can be quite an elegant treat too.Besides, how can you go wrong with 4 ingredients?!


Honey Walnut & Brie Tartlettes
original Joelen recipe

3 packages phyllo shells
1 lb Brie cheese, rind removed
3-4 tablespoons sweet honey
1/4 cup chopped & toasted walnuts

Place phyllo shells onto a serving platter. Place a heaping teaspoon of brie cheese into each shell and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle the walnuts into each shell and serve.

  7. Do you bake the phylo shells before adding brie or after?

  8. @King Family - thanks for your comment! The mini phyllo shells are packaged already baked so they're ready to use/eat once opened.... making it super simple and quick to make the tarts & serve. Enjoy!

  9. Thanks Joelen!

    I got the sheets and made a sample before the big day.

    How far ahead do you think I can make these? I don't want them to get soggy. (2hr, 8hr, 24 hr??)

    TIA

  10. @King Family - If you got the phyllo sheets, you can make the cups from scratch a day in advance, but don't fill them. (When using phyllo sheets, stack a few sheets together and cut into 1 inch squares. Dip the squares into melted butter and place in a mini muffin pan to form the small tart cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Cool before filling). If you got the ready to use phyllo cups, I wouldn't fill them too much ahead. If anything, cut out small bites of brie cheese and fill the phyllo cups with the walnuts... and just before serving,drizzle with honey. Hope this helps!

  12. Hi coolkids! You can find these phyllo shells in the freezer section of your local grocery store. Check the area where frozen pie crusts and puff pastry are sold. Hope this helps!

  13. Can we bake them to melt the cheese and have the flavors blend? I love baked brie so thought it might be good?? Thanks a lot!

  16. It's really very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I
    only use internet for that reason, and get the most up-to-date news.
