One of my favorite parts about the holidays is Baked Brie! It’s an epic appetizer and I could seriously eat the entire wheel of brie in one sitting. But that’s the problem – it’s clearly not the best decision to eat an entire wheel of baked Brie, so I invented these crazy cute Baked Brie Fillo Shells with Fig Preserves!
It’s essentially a mini baked Brie topped with my all time favorite preserve… Fig! Then I add a little sprig of thyme on top and an almond to give it a little more crunch! And that’s about it.
These are the easiest and most delectable appetizers for any kind of holiday party!
Baked Brie Phyllo Shells with Fig Preserves
15 Athens® Mini Fillo Shells (1 package)
6 oz. brie cheese, about 1 wedge
¼ cup fig preserves
¼ cup whole almonds
a few sprigs of thyme for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Remove the Athens Mini Fillo Shells from their plastic container and transfer them onto a small baking sheet.
Break the brie into small pieces, about 1 teaspoon each, and place one in each shell.
Transfer the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 5 minutes, until the brie is just slightly starting to melt. You don’t want to over heat the brie as then it will be too loose.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully spoon a little dab of fig preserves on top of each piece of brie. Add an almond on top, and a few thyme leaves and serve immediately.
