Brie & Scallion Tartlets

Brie & Scallion Tartlets
Recipe yields 15 tartlets
As shared from the kitchen of Once Upon a Plate

I found this recipe on the "Taste of Home" website, the original recipe called for a leek but since I had none I substituted sliced green onions (scallions). I think you could also used finely diced onion or shallots as well. These are so good and they don't last long so you may want to double the recipe if you are making them for a group.

1 medium leek (white portion only), finely chopped or 2 small bunch green onions (scallions), including green part
3 tablespoons butter
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Dash salt and white pepper
Dash ground nutmeg
1 package (1.9 ounces) frozen miniature phyllo tart shells
2 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed, (or your choice of cheese)

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat, saute leek (or scallions) until tender. The scallions are more tender and will only take a short time to cook. Add the
garlic; cook for a few moments then stir in the cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg; cook and stir for a couple of minutes until mixture thickens.
Arrange tart shells on a baking sheet. Slice cheese into 15 pieces; place one piece in each tart shell. Top each with 1-1/2 teaspoons leek/scallion mixture.

•Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes or until heated through.
