Fig and Brie Bites

I have a bad habit of biting off a little more than I can chew. I don't know why I do it to myself, I just can't help it. Especially when it comes to food. I am the girl who thinks she can bake a 3-layer cake from scratch in the hour before work while simultaneously cleaning the kitchen and getting ready to go in for a shift.

 It's just who I am. But, that is why I am so grateful when I find recipes that taste and look fancy-pants, but require minimal effort to assemble.

 Thus, I present to you a new favorite party-food-go-to: Fig and Brie Bites.


Now, the secret to this breeze of a bite is that I buy the baked phyllo shells pre-made at the store. Stop your gasping, we all have to cut corners somewhere!
   And these little guys are pretty awesome, I'm stuck on this combo right now but I feel that the versatility here is endless.

 For now-I take a little bit of a Fig spread( I love the richness of the fig) and a wedge of brie cut into small pieces. Pop it into the the mini shells and pop those into an oven for about 8 minutes.

The taste is fantastic. And the work level is somewhere around a 2. Only because you have to open the box that the shells come in.

Now go grab some wine, make these babies, and get your classy on!

Fig and Brie Bites

Ingredients

  • 2 boxes of pre-baked mini phyllo shells (usually 15cnt.)
  • A few tablespoons of good Fig spread (I love Dalmatia)
  • 1 wedge of brie


Directions
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place phyllo cups onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment.
Cut the rind away from the brie, and cut the cheese into small pieces. Spread a small amount of the fig spread into each cup, and then top with a chunk of brie.
Bake for 8 minutes, or until golden and melted.

These are awesome warm, but also great served at room temperature.
