Description

Looking for some snacky crunchy things to serve your guests? I've got holiday appetizers: phyllo cups five ways and you are going to love them.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 15 phyllo cups (1 package)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 15 raspberries
  • 15 blueberries
  • 3-4 teaspoons honey (drizzle on top)

Instructions

  1. Unpackage your phyllo cups and lay them out on a small sheet pan.
  2.  Spoon about 1 ½ teaspoons of mascarpone cheese into each cup. It will look like a heaping amount, but remember the cheese will melt in the oven and the size will reduce. I did test this and this amount works best.
  3.  Bake the phyllo cups and mascarpone in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese melts and the phyllo is toasty.
  4. While the cups are cooking, select your 15 best raspberries and 15 best blueberries.
  5. Once the phyllo cups are out of the oven let them cool just a couple of minutes, then transfer to your serving plate or platter.
  6. Gently place one raspberry and one blueberry in each cup.
  7. Using a kitchen teaspoon, drizzle a little honey over the cups and a little on the platter for presentation.
  8. Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. For the mascarpone I bought one 8-ounce container and it was perfect. I used it to make a few extras. You can use any leftover mascarpone on your morning toast too – taste great with fruity jam on top
  2.  For the honey drizzle using a smaller spoon works better.
