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.
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
