These absolutely delicious appetizer bites are my adaptation of our French Fridays with Dorie recipe of the week, Gorgonzola Apple Quiche. I loved the fruit and cheese combo but am not a fan of quiche and knew no one else in the family would be up for trying it, so I made little mini tarts instead.
I pretty much just left off the cream and egg off of the recipe and made minis instead of one big tart.
If you can't find imported gorgonzola, Bel Gioioso Cheese makes a delicious version made in Wisconsin. Meijer usually carries this cheese and I buy it often, it's so good!
Above is the measured out two ounces of cheese...
and here is the cheese mixed up with the cubed apples.
I prebaked Dorie's tart dough for 10 minutes, then baked another 10 after adding the apples and cheese.
These were absolutely delicious, and Dorie's tart dough was so nice and flaky. I drizzled a few with honey and that just took them over the top with the savory sweet flavor combination. These would be just perfect for an appetizer party or as wine tasting nibbles, and I would not hesitate to make these again. I'm sure that if you like quiche/eggs the recipe as written was just as palate pleasing to you as these tartlets were to me :) My mom was visiting and loved these as well, the kids were not fans, but it is more of a grown-up flavor.
