Mini Baked Brie Cups

When it comes to summer entertaining, I find that it is a wise idea to keep a few pantry items well stocked for a quick throw together snack, dessert, or appetizer. Fillo cups have always come in handy in making that quick dish possible. They are usually found in the freezer section, in small boxes of fifteen, but lately I am seeing them in the bread or cookie sections of the store. One of the most delicious, richest appetizer is Baked Brie, always a welcomed appetizer at any affair.


The simplicity in making Mini Baked Brie Cups is appreciated as these little gems come together quickly without much fuss. A tiny cube of brie is placed in each cup while a mixture of brown sugar, sliced almonds, and orange rind adorn each cup which is then baked to a crispy, creamy golden brown while the essence of orange surprises one’s taste buds.

Mini Baked Brie Cups
one box, 15 count Fillo Cups
one small wedge of brie
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sliced almonds
grated rind from one orange

Place fillo cups on a baking tray. Cut brie into 15 small cubes that fit down into each fillo cup. Place one cube in each cup. Mix sugar, nuts, and rind in a small bowl and sprinkle over each cube of brie. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until brie is melted, almonds are toasted, and sugar is caramelized. Watch closely as these can burn quickly. Makes 15 pieces and serves 6-7.

Wow- that is huge for my wee, little blog and I appreciate being able to create this site because of you– my readers– my friends– who encourage me to keep going. Thank you.

    Last night I was looking through lunch ideas and came across something similar. This will be added to my fancy lunch treats (for the adults and older ones) for the school year!

    Like the idea of the orange zest to give a little freshness to the otherwise rich (but yummy) bite. When I saw your notation 'mini cups' my mind immediately went to a crab filling. I'm going to have to look for these in the supermarket.

    All cheeses benefit from being at room temperature, but there is just something about warm brie that surpasses all other cheeses!
