Couldn't be easier to make and looked and tasted great. This is such a good idea for spur of the moment guests. I'll be keeping supplies for this on hand from now on. I had to use phillo cups as no tart shells to be found. You can sure use your imagination to change up the toppings based on what you have on hand.
My grocery store did not have mini tart shells, so I substitute phyllo cups. They came out great! Will definitely use this recipe again. There were 15 phyllo cups in a pkg so it made a few more than 12.
I've made something similar to this for years, but instead of red pepper jelly, I use fig preserves! FABULOUS for brunch!
Such an easy and tasty recipe. These were very elegant looking, I made just a few of these as a starter for an Oscars Night themed meal. I did not have red pepper jelly, so I instead used mango chutney, which came out delicious. I also removed the rind from the cheese before adding to the tart shells.
So easy and so tasty!I cut off the top & bottom outer layer of the cheese. I find, depending on the brand, that the outside can be bitter. Also I reccommend that you use unsweetened tart shells. I used yellow Habanero jelly and it was quite pretty on the cheese.. Thanks Sage for a lovely Appetizer - I will use this one over & over again .21 Dec 08 I love these appies however when I opened my brie cheese it was - GONE- I mean really bad and I only bought it a week ago - Can't remember which store I bought it from so Boo Hoo - Happy birds they can now feast on it. SOoo what to do - it is 2:30 appie due at three - I opened a Bluecheese/Cranberry cheese and used that - It was not as good as Brie or camenbert but it was OK - Recipe great local grocery not great! 22 Dec 09 Made again this time with Danish Brie & brandied Cranberry sauce Mmmmmmmmm
Wonderful and super easy little nibbles; I used red pepper jelly and it really made the flavour POP. I cut off most of the rind as well. Made for Family Picks ZWT5.
Made these as a Christmas Day nibble and they were a huge hit. I agree with Bergy regarding cutting the rindy layer off the brie....just made it more appealing to me. I used hot cherry pepper jelly and it was an absolutely delicious appetizer. Thanks for a definite keeper that I will use over and over again. By the way, our mini tart shells come in pkg's of 18 and I had plenty of cheese in the size recommended in the recipe to fill all 18 shells.
easy and okay for us - brie isn't a usual choice of cheese for us but we like to experiment
Excellent, quick, easy and elegant! Loved 'em!
Delicious and so quick to make. I wasn't certain that everyone in my family would like hot red pepper jelly (the only kind I could find) so I only used it on half of the tarts. For the other half I added orange marmalade. This made a wonderful appetizer that was enjoyed by all. I'll be making this recipe often.
