INGREDIENTS FOR RASPBERRY BRIE BITES
- brie cheese
- raspberry jam
- sliced almonds
Don’t forget the phyllo shells! I love to make a big batch homemade and store them in my freezer.
They are great to have on hand when you need a last minute appetizer.
HOW TO MAKE BRIE RASPBERRY PHYLLO CUP APPETIZERS
ONE: Preheat oven to 350F. Place tart shells on a baking sheet. Remove rind from brie and cut in cubes.
TWO: Place a piece of brie cheese in each cup. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melty and golden brown.
THREE: Remove from the oven and add a little over a teaspoon of raspberry jam. Garnish with sliced/toasted almonds.
Best served warm!

DO YOU TAKE THE RIND OFF THE BRIE BEFORE BAKING?
You don’t have to take the rind off but for these mini phyllo cups, I like to keep the bites simple and extra cheesy.
ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO HEAT UP BRIE CHEESE?
Brie can be eaten chilled or at room temperature. But I like my brie best when it’s warm, melty, and gooey!
WHAT IS GOOD WITH BAKED BRIE?
I like to eat brie with fruit and nuts which create a great flavor and texture contrast.
WHAT JAM GOES WITH BRIE?
Jam is the easiest ingredient to pair with brie cheese and I prefer a tart one. Raspberry and cherry are among my favorite flavors, along with a spicy hot pepper jelly!
CAN YOU BUY PHYLLO CUPS?
You can buy packages of 15 cups, which is perfect for this recipe, but I prefer to make mine homemade!
HOW DO YOU KEEP PHYLLO CUPS FROM GETTING SOGGY?
The phyllo dough cups can be brushed with a little egg white to keep the cheese from soaking into the layers.
But I have found that the goodness from the cheese only helps the layers get even crispier while baking. That’s the fat in the recipe (which is oh so tasty!!)
TAPAS TIPS & TRICKS
- Bring the phyllo shells to room temperature (I do this while prepping the brie) before baking.
- I wouldn’t recommend assembling these more than 15 minutes ahead of time.
- Any leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Just reheat by warming in the oven until the cheese is melty again.
- Experiment with different jams and jellies if raspberry isn’t your jam, LOL!
- This recipe uses a 1/2 standard wheel of brie. The other recipes use the other half so make two flavors at once and don’t waste any cheese.
- Great for after thanksgiving where you can use leftover cranberry sauce.
- Place the cube of brie in the center of the cup so ensure even melting.
