3 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 30 (1/2-inch) cubes

I have most often made this with the prepared phyllo cups in the freezer section. These are interesting and something different for guests to try, plus you can make them ahead and then pop them in the oven in batches if necessary so you can keep serving warm ones. They are a little gooey and flaky, but small enough that they're not too messy. Nice to keep these few ingredients on hand. Recommended for parties or for trying a few new appetizers with family before you serve them to others.
These were so delicious they almost didn't make it to the party. I was kept eating them on the way there:
To make them even quicker, I used the pre-made pastry shells which are pre-baked so they only took the 5 minutes for the brie to melt.
I will definitely make these on weekends just for me to snack on!!
