Ingredients

  • 1 apple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Teaspoons butter
  • 1 Cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 Tablespoons finely chopped walnuts, toasted, divided
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1.9 Ounces frozen miniature phyllo tart shells or 1 package

Directions

In a small nonstick skillet, sauté apple and onion in butter until tender. Remove from the heat; stir in the blue cheese, 3 tablespoons of walnuts, and salt. Spoon a rounded tablespoonful into each tart shell.

Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining walnuts; bake 2-3 minutes longer or until lightly bronwed. 

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
