They are deliciously simple and present beautifully for parties. In fact, they are one of my favorite hand-held hors d’oeurves.

You can make these brie bites with petite little premade pastry shells for a bit of crunch, or bake them in a phyllo pastry cup with more of a fluffy rise. However you decide to make them, your guests are sure to adore them!

These little brie bites are one of our favorite appetizers and it’s easy to understand why. Easy to customize and beautiful to serve, they will be the hit of your display of delicious little bites at parties!

I love evenings at home with wine, fruits, cheese and crackers – especially when they’re melted together into fantastic little bites.

You can make these brie bites in two different ways, as you’ll see below. Create them with two different options for the premade dough cups or shells… either way, I think you’re going to love them! Let’s get started.

Tips

  • You can leave the brie rind on if you’d like, but this cheese melts better when cubed if it’s removed in this recipe!
  • These appetizers only take a few minutes to bake, so keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t over cook.
  • As soon as they come out of the oven, top them with any additional toppings and serve immediately so that the cheese is melted.
  • If you like, you can place the cheese in the shells ahead of time and keep them covered at room temperature, then just pop them into a pre-heated oven when you are ready to serve them.

Shortcuts

  • Luckily, these brie bites are already using the easiest shortcut of all – pre-packaged dough cups!

How many phyllo cups come in a package?

15 miniature phyllo cups come in one package from the freezer section of your grocery store.

Is phyllo dough the same as puff pastry?

Puff pastry and phyllo dough are different in both fat content and preparation. Puff pastry is an airier puff of dough that features butter, and phyllo dough is lower in fat because it uses a little oil, no butter.

How to Store

  • At Room Temperature – These baked brie bites can sit out at room temperature for up to two hours while serving, but are most delicious when warm right out of the oven.
  • Refrigerate – For up to 48 hours after baking.
  • Freeze – I don’t recommend freezing these brie bites after serving.
