These elegant bite-sized foie gras tarts are simple yet luxurious, not to mention small enough that you won’t feel guilty eating them! Whipped foie gras and mascarpone cheese merge into an irresistibly creamy and decadent mix, encased in sweet mini tart shells and topped with balsamic-and-port-wine fig spread…definitely something to make your guests happy!

Cheese and Foie Gras Mini Tart Recipe


  1. Using a hand mixer, whip the mascarpone in a large bowl until light and fluffy (this will take approx. 2 minutes).
  2. Slice the micuit foie gras, add it to the mascarpone and continue whipping until the foie gras is fully incorporated into the mascarpone and the mixture is entirely light and fluffy (another 2-3 minutes, approx.).
  3. Take the tart shells and spoon a small amount of the fig spread with balsamic and port wine into the bottom of each, taking up about ¼ of the height of the shell.
  4. Invert your pastry bag and fill it with the mascarpone-foie-gras mixture.
  5. Pipe that mixture onto each shell starting from the edge, spiraling around and inward to the center, before pulling up to finish.
  6. Dab a small drop of the fig spread onto the top of each mini-tart.
