This is one of my all-time favorite things to make and bring with me when I'm going to a party. It's quick and easy to prepare, you can make them right before you leave for your event, and everyone seems to love them. They also look beautiful and elegant without much effort. They make the perfect appetizer bite for New Years Eve, or anytime for that matter. But be warned, they go quickly, so you may want to make two batches! Each batch makes 15 bites, so I typically make at least two.
1 package of Athens Phyllo Shells
8 oz wheel of Brie (my favorite brand for baking is President)
Jar of Raspberry Preserves
1/4 cup of Pecans, chopped in half or slightly smaller
The Athens Phyllo Shells are fully baked, so they only need to cook briefly. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line the shells up on a cookie sheet.
Cut the wheel of brie into 15 cubes, small enough to fit into the phyllo shells. Gently place each cube inside a phyllo shell.
Using a small spoon, add a scoop of raspberry preserves to each shell as well. If you want to be specific, I would say about a 1/2 teaspoon to each shell.
Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the brie is bubbly and the shells are golden.
Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and add a chopped pecan to the top of each along with a few sprigs of rosemary. That's all there is to it. Simple. Beautiful. Delicious.
