Honey Apple Brie Bites

Raise your hand if you like appetizers.  Ok.  Now, you know I can't actually see your hand, right?  But, I know that you had it raised.  Which is why I just have to share this recipe with you.  Sweet apples, warm honey, melted cheese, crisp phyllo shells, bite-sized.


You have to make these.  You will love them.  You will love that the simplicity of this recipe fades into the background of their elegance.  You will  love the textures of each ingredient, combined.  In fact, you probably shouldn't wait for a special occasion to make them.  Your next snack time is perfect enough.

Honey Apple Brie Bites
Adapted from Easy and Impressive Appetizers by Pampered Chef

1 lemon
1/2 cup pecans
1 medium red apple (I used Gala), unpeeled, sliced and diced
1/4 cup honey
1 4-in. round of Brie cheese with rind
2 packages of prepared mini phyllo shells (30 total)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Zest lemon to measure 1 tsp. zest.

For apple mixture, combine diced apple, lemon zest, honey, and pecans.  Mix gently.

Cut Brie into 30 1/2-inch cubes.  Arrange phyllo cups on rimmed baking sheet.  Place one Brie cube in each phyllo shell.  Top Brie with a level scoop of apple mixture.

Bake 6-8 minutes or until Brie is melted.

  1. I simply ADORE the combination of apples and Brie! One of my favorite sandwiches is a toasted ciabatta with apples and brie. Oh mouth is watering...
