This Cranberry Gorgonzola Tart is sure to impress your guests at your holiday party. Tangy blue cheese, sweet cranberries and crunchy pecans are a perfect combo!
Before you start making those New Year resolutions, you'll be needing appetizers to ring the year out and that is where this Cranberry Gorgonzola Tart comes in. If you want to be the hit of the party, whip up these fancy looking tarts. Trust me they aren't too fussy and are super flavorful with the tang of the cranberries and gorgonzola cheese.
Parties are always a fun time - I love seeing family and friends plus I'm an appetizer grazer! I enjoy finding yummy bites to put on my plate. I also happen to love the season of cranberries and have made a cranberry salsa recipe to go with grilled shrimp. If you are looking for other cranberry recipes, check out Ocean Spray's recipe page. I get inspiration there.
Oh, I should mention too that these freeze really well. Just reheat in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes. You can be prepared for those last minute drop in guests! I hope you have a happy new year!
Cranberry Gorgonzola Tart
This Cranberry Gorgonzola Tart will impress you guests and have them asking for seconds (and the recipe!)
- 2 pie crusts (pre-made)

- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 2 tablespoons green onions, chopped

- Note this makes one 9" tart or five 5" tarts (I made smaller tarts)
