Salted Pecan Brie Tartlets with Honey Drizzle

A fun and easy appetizer recipe made with mini phyllo cups filled with creamy brie, toasty pecans and sea salt drizzled with honey.


Look at any proper cheese board and you’ll find four things:
  • Cheese (obviously)
  • Something salty (like nuts or cured meat)
  • Something sweet (like fruit or honey)
  • And a vehicle for getting the cheese and accompaniments into your mouth (like crackers or dried bread sticks)

You’ll find all of these things because they create the perfect culinary storm: creamy, crunchy, sweet and salty.

I almost always set out some sort of cheese board when we’re having folks over. My favorites to include are a variety of cheeses (again, obviously), grapes, a dish of honey, smokehouse almonds, prosciutto and crackers.

If you’re wondering about the honey, try a nub of blue cheese on a cracker with a drizzle of honey on it and you’ll be sold! My mouth's watering just thinking about it!

If I’m feeling more ambitious when we’re entertaining, I make these little tartlets! My favorite combo is what I have in this recipe (brie, pecans, sea salt and honey) but here are some other combinations I’ve made with brie or camembert:
  • Apricot preserves with salted pistachios
  • Honey-soaked figs with sea salt
  • Cranberry sauce and salted walnuts (amazing at Thanksgiving!)
  • Strawberry jam with pecans and sea salt
  • Chutney with diced fresh pears

These looks super fancy-pantsy but they are crazy easy to prepare and are still fabulous hours after they’ve come out of the oven.
