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  🎄




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

Spoon filling into shells and bake
