Brie Bites

Hubby and I were going to a wine and cheese party. I wanted to bring an appetizer that fit the theme. I just kind of threw these together and they were quite tasty!

Brie Bites (by ME!)
60 pre-made phyllo cups (4 packages)
15 oz Brie wheel – or spreadable Brie – see note below
topping choices:
Brown sugar
Dried cranberries
Toasted almonds
Fruit preserves

Cut the white casing off the Brie. I like to freeze the Brie for about 20 minutes to make this task easier. Cut Brie into 60 pieces (about 1-inch squares). NOTE: I made these more recently (11/29/08) and used the spreadable Brie that you can find right next to the regular Brie. It has no rind, so you can just scoop it into the cups. This was SO MUCH easier than cutting off the rind. It also melted a lot better and had a better texture because of it. I highly recommend doing it this way.

Put one piece of Brie into each phyllo cup. Bake for about 7 minutes at 350.

Top with either 1 tsp of fruit preserves or 1/2 tsp brown sugar and a couple almonds and a couple dried cranberries. Cook again for a few minutes to melt the preserves/sugar.

    SQUEAAAAALLL! Ok, first I came over to comment (from my Google Reader), and I noticed the new design. I LOVE IT! It’s fresh, clean, and fun! 🙂

    Second, this recipe sounds divine! I’ve had bourbon pecan brie, but never Kahlua Walnut. YUM!

    PS. I also never comment on your big move. How exciting! My sister lives an hour outside of Cincinnati. And I have a cousin that lives there too. Needless to say, I have plenty of reasons to visit. (Other reasons include IKEA.) Hopefully we will someday get the chance to meetup!

      Thanks Erin! I’m totally digging the new look too 🙂 I work right by the IKEA.

      We should definitely try to meet up at some point! Let me know when you’re in town.
