Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Cut Brie into 15 pieces. Place 1 piece into each phyllo shell, and top each with a rounded 1/4 teaspoonful fig preserves. Place on a baking sheet, and bake 6 minutes. Sprinkle with candied ginger and pepper to taste.

Step 2

Goat Cheese-and-Olive Mini Tarts: Preheat oven to 375°. Place 1 tsp. softened goat cheese into each of 15 frozen mini-phyllo pastry shells. Top each with 1/2 tsp. olive tapenade. Place on a baking sheet, and bake 6 minutes. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Step 3

Cheddar-Chutney Mini Tarts: Preheat oven to 375°. Stir together 2 oz. softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese. Divide cream cheese mixture among 15 frozen mini-phyllo pastry shells; top each with 1/2 tsp. mango chutney. Place on a baking sheet, and bake 6 minutes.

Step 4
