Last Saturday we had plans to go to a friend’s house for dinner.
We were asked to bring an appetizer.
The days leading up to Saturday were chaotic at best. We had just gotten home from Quebec, I had dozens of cookies to make and ice and work was quite busy.
I didn’t have the time or brain power to make anything complicated
So I came up with this gem using Provisions fruit pastes. I mentioned Provisions Food Company as one of my favourite things in a previous post.
It is so simple and quick. It took only 10 minutes to make 2 dozen of these little bits of heaven
You only need 4 ingredients
Fruit paste or jam
Heat your oven to 375 degrees
Using a pastry brush cover one sheet of phyllo in butter
Cover your remaining phyllo with a damp cloth. Phyllo dries out very quickly and will become flaky and impossible to work with.
Take a second sheet of phyllo and lay it on top of the first sheet. The butter helps the sheets stick together and helps to add flakiness.
Using a paring knife cut the phyllo into 6 slices
Put a piece of brie and a teaspoon of fruit paste on the end of each slice
Take one corner and fold it up towards the other side to make a triangle
Repeat until you get to the end of the phyllo
Cover in melted butter and make for 5-7 minutes or until they are golden brown
Word of warning… let these cool off for a few minutes before you dive into them. They are hot!!!
Not bad for only a few minutes of work.
If you need a quick, easy and inexpensive app to bring to a holiday party I think this one hits the mark.
