Looking for a perfect Holiday party or game day hors d’oeuvre? These easy to make tartlets are sweet and tangy with just a hint of savory flavor. These crowd pleasers make a big impression. And just like chips, it’s hard to have just one!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large pears, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Dash salt
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 packages (1.9 ounces each) frozen miniature phyllo tart shells
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350°. In a skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add pears; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until tender.

Stir in honey and salt; cook 4-5 minutes longer or until pears are lightly browned. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Stir in cheeses.

Place tart shells on an ungreased baking sheet. Fill each with 1-1/2 teaspoons filling; sprinkle with walnuts.

Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
