Ingredients

For the Phyllo

  • Olive oil - extra virgin or melted butter
  • 5 sheets Phyllo pastry - properly thawed - or 1 sheet puff pastry or 24 mini fillo (phyllo shells)

For the Filling

  • 200- 250 g Brie - cut in small squares
  • ¼-1/2 cup Jam - (of your choice: apricot, fig, cranberry, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry-jalapeño, pepper…)
  • ¼ cup Pecans - finely chopped or walnuts or any other favorite nut, optional

Instructions

Important

  • If your Phyllo pastry was in the freezer, take it out in time for it to defrost. See notes for best results.

Prepare the Phyllo (skip this if using mini fillo (phyllo) shells)

  • Carefully remove the phyllo roll from the plastic sleeve. Unroll the phyllo sheets and place them between two very lightly damp kitchen cloths.
  • Layer about 5 sheets of phyllo making sure to brush each sheet with olive oil.
  • Most packages come in 12- x 18-inch sheets when opened fully. Using scissors or sharp knife or pizza wheel cut the sheets in 3- x 3-inch (24 squares - (four strips one way, six strips the other way)).

Prepare the brie

  • If it is too creamy, Place Brie cheese in the freezer for 20 minutes*.
  • Cut the brie into 24 cubes (about 1/2″). If you're working with the rounded edge of a wheel of cheese, combine two smaller pieces, if needed. Don’t worry about the rind. It’s totally edible and once it’s baked, you won’t even know the difference.

Baking

  • Lightly grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F).
  • Press one square lightly into each muffin cup creating a small basket for the brie and jam or place mini shells on a baking sheet.
  • Place one small piece of brie in each mini-shell.
  • Top each brie filled mini shell with dollop of jam (about 1/2 teaspoon or more if you prefer). Lightly warm the jam if it is too thick to drizzle in evenly. I usually go with Apricot but strawberry, raspberry, cranberry or cranberry-jalapeño and fig are so good too. You could even mix and match to suit everyone’s taste! Feel free to customize your Brie Bites as needed.
  • Optional: Top each bit with a sprinkle of finely chopped pecans. Sometimes I leave a few bites without nuts, in case guests have an allergy or they just aren’t particularly fond of nuts.
  • Pop them in pre heated oven for 7 minutes or until brie has melted and they’re golden brown.
  • Be careful to keep an eye on it so shells don’t burn.
  • Serve immediately (these are divine warm but we love them at room temperature too).
  • This is no problem, though, just watch them disappear in no time!

Notes

* Placing the Brie cheese in the freezer for 20 minutes makes it easier to cut.
Feel free to leave nuts out for a nut-free option.
For best results:
  • The dough must be thawed properly; too much moisture will make the dough or sheets sticky and hard to manage. When thawing, do not remove the phyllo (fillo) from the package, place it in the fridge 12-14 hours before using.
  • Before you begin, unroll the thawed phyllo (fillo) sheets and place them carefully between two ever-so-slightly damp kitchen cloths. This helps the sheets remain lenient so they won’t tear too much.
  •  Phyllo (fillo) sheets will tear, and that’s perfectly fine.
  • Do not skimp on the butter or oil (I use quality virgin olive oil here instead to keep it light), but do not overdo it either. You need to brush each of the layers with a little olive oil.
Make Ahead: Alternatively, the pastries can be assembled and chilled until ready to bake. You can make in the evening before. Cover and refrigerate. When you are ready, go ahead and bake.
Freezing: Already cooked bites will freeze well. Be sure to have it well covered in heavy-duty sealed plastic bags to avoid freezer burn. Bake frozen pastries(do not thaw) in the same manner as above.
