These tasty appetizers look and taste gourmet, but they're easy to make and have loads of blue cheese flavor. The phyllo shells and filling can be made in advance—just fill the cups and warm them in the oven before serving. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

  • 1 large apple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts, toasted, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (1.9 ounces) frozen miniature phyllo tart shells


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add apple and onion; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat; stir in blue cheese, 3 tablespoons walnuts and salt. Spoon a rounded tablespoon of mixture into each tart shell.
  2. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining walnuts; bake until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes longer.
  3. Freeze option: Freeze cooled pastries in a freezer container, separating layers with waxed paper. To use, reheat pastries on a baking sheet in a preheated 350° oven until crisp and heated through.
