Have you ever been invited to a last minute get together with limited time to prepare something to bring? No fear, these fig and goat cheese tartlets are easy, inexpensive, and quick! Plus, they are absolutely delicious and look cute! All you need is some goat cheese, fig jam, and phyllo cups. Boom. Impressive AF little snack.
why you should make this recipe
Tangy goat cheese. Sweet fig jam. Crispy phyllo cups. Need I say more? I honestly love anything with a goat cheese + fig combo (pizzas, salads, you name it!). What’s nice about these fig and goat cheese tartlets is that they can be served hot or lukewarm. They are the perfect appetizer to bring to, for instance, a potluck, where you are picking at food and items might sit out for awhile. A serving of these is two tartlets, but honestly I find that people tend to eat 4. Lastly, these are done in 20 minutes.. how fast is that?
- Fig Jam – You can use any flavor jam you like, but my personal favorite is fig. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, and fig goes nicely with the goat cheese.
- Goat Cheese – Gosh, I love goat cheese. I used plain for this recipe, but you could also use herbed goat cheese if you’d like. The tanginess and creaminess of this cheese makes it the perfect addition to these fig and goat cheese tartlets. If you’re a fan of goat cheese, you must try my Warm Goat Cheese Salad or this tart with whipped goat cheese!
- Phyllo Cups – I always have these on hand for last minute apps. You can use this for anything, they are so versatile. My favorites are from Pepperidge Farm.
how to make this recipe your own
- If fig isn’t your jam – Not a fan of fig? Or maybe you don’t have it on hand? Add your favorite type of jam instead!
How can I store these, and for how long?
Store leftover tartlets in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Can I reheat these?
Absolutely. Place these fig and goat cheese tartlets on a baking sheet and place in an oven preheated to 350F and cook until warmed through (about 5-7 minutes).
