Party Panache, Rosemary Mixed Nut Tartlettes

This is a great little party bite we enjoyed over the Thanksgiving weekend

Mixed nut tartlettes

They are a little sweet, a little savory, a little sinful and the rosemary makes them feel like

the holidays  ๐ŸŽ„


and BONUS, they are super fast and easy to make…


Arrange the premade fillo dough tartlette shells on a parchment lined baking sheet


Next make the caramel coating by boiling butter, brown sugar and cream


Add nuts


I used deluxe mixed nuts {and picked out the filberts} and some dry roasted peanuts


Add fresh rosemary and stir to coat everything
