Baked Brie and Apple Tarts

I made these for an activity with the ladies of my church and they were a big hit. I had a bunch of people ask for the recipe. I just got the recipe off of pinterest, and honestly I really didn’t like the way the recipe was written. It was very vague and she had measurements off. So I decided to remake it and rewrite the recipe so I could share it with my friends and you all. They are super yummy!

Baked Brie and Apple Tarts

Makes 24 tarts in classic sized muffin tins

Ingredients:

  • Phyllo dough
  • 8 oz Brie Cheese cut in one inch squares
  • 2 cups of Gala Apples (about 3 apples) chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

For the Glaze:

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cut the phyllo dough in about 3×3 inch squares and fit 4-5 sheets in muffin tins.
  3. Combine apples, water, sugar, and cinnamon in a medium sauce pan and heat on medium high heat until bubbling. Reduce heat to simmer for about 7 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and the apples have softened.
  4. Using a potato masher or a fork, mash apples until they are semi-mashed (if you chop the apples small enough, you may be able to skip this step).
  5. Place one cube of cheese in each phyllo cup. Top with 1 teaspoon of your apple mixture.
  6. Bake in oven until brown and bubbly, about 10 minutes.
  7. While tarts are baking, mix butter, milk, and powdered sugar with a hand mixer until smooth.
  8. Frost tarts with the glaze while the tarts are still warm.

And here are my photos of the process. It was honestly fun photographing these for a little food blog post!
