Ingredients

  • One  package refrigerated pie crusts, such as Pillsbury, softened
  • dried figs or pitted dates, coarsely chopped
  • 1  Cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/4  Cup  chopped walnuts
  • 1/2  Cup  crumbed Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1  Tablespoon  honey

Directions

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Unroll the pie crust onto a flat surface. Using a 2-inch cookie cutter, cut 24 rounds from the pie crust, rerolling the crust scraps if necessary. Gently press the rounds into 24 ungreased mini muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together the figs, brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts. Spoon slightly less than 1 teaspoon of the fig mixture into each cup. Break up any larger pieces of cheese and top each tartlet with slightly less than 1 teaspoon cheese.

Bake for 7-11 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Remove the tartlets from the pan to a serving plate. Drizzle the tartlets with honey. Serve warm.

Gorgonzola Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Gorgonzola Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
