Gorgonzola, Fig and Walnut Tartlets
I have so many Pillsbury products at my house right now, I went a little crazy with the coupons the other week.
I strive to be one of those Extreme Couponers but, I don't think I will be as good as them!
So I looked up on the Pillsbury web-site holiday appetizers and found this mouth watering treat!
What you will need is:
1 Box of Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on the box
6 dried figs or pitted dates, well chopped
1 Tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
1/8 to 1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 Cup chopped walnuts
1/2 Cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (2 oz)
1 Tablespoon honey
How to make it:
Preheat your over to 450 degrees.
Unroll your pie crust
Use a 2 inch cookie cutter, cut 24 rounds from the pie crust, re-roll crust scraps if necessary.
Gently press 1 round in a bottom and up side of each of 24 ungreased mini muffin cups
In a small bowl mix the figs, sugar, cinnamon and walnuts.
Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the mixture in each cup.
Break up any larger pieces of cheese (don't ask me why, I LOVE big chunks of cheese!)
Top each tartlet with slightly less than 1 teaspoon of cheese
Bake for 11 minutes
Remove from oven place onto your serving plate then drizzle with honey.
