Port-Glazed Grape Tarts with Pecan Crust

60 mins (prep 45)

makes 2 (11- by 8-inch) tarts
Our food editors loved shavings of Stilton cheese on these tarts. We understand that nobody has much room for dessert after a big meal, much less one with cheese, but these tarts are actually quite light and refreshing: The Stilton lends depth and provides a savory counterpoint to the sweet grapes and crust.
