Brie-Leek Tartlets

My family is picky, but everyone loves these little bites. I make dozens of them at a time because they're gone the second I turn my back. —Colleen MacDonald, Port Moody, British Columbia

    Made these tonight for my husband & my mother, who is visiting from out of town. They absolutely loved these! And there weren't any leftovers! Will definitely make again!

    Made these for the first time tonite for my appy party and they did not disappoint! Like magic, they all disappeared really, really quickly (note-there were only 5 of us). Did make my own phyllo mini tart shells for this as well. Copies of recipes requested. Absolutely fantastically tasty!!

    I substituted mini pie shells for the tartlets.

    OMG! These are soooo tasty! I have made them many, many times. Everyone loves them. It makes a lot more filling than necessary so I double up on the shells. Don't worry though, they'll get eaten!

    I have made these three times in the past 2 months and they have turned out wonderfully each time. They are easy and delicious and disappear off the serving tray quickly. Try them and you won't be disappointed.
