Super quick and easy, this recipe dresses up the old standby. You can even prep the fillo shells and cream cheese in advance, and just pop them in the oven when your guests arrive. Enjoy!
Serves: 30 appetizers
  • 2 boxes Athens Mini Fillo Shells (30 shells)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 small jar red pepper jelly
  1. Put cream cheese in freezer for 30-60 minutes for easy cutting. (Not required, but helpful.)
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Place fillo cups on baking sheet.
  5. Use a knife to cut the bar of cream cheese into 30 cubes. I did this by cutting the bar into 4 large pieces, and then cut each smaller piece into 8 cubes.
  6. Place a cube of cream cheese into each cup.
  7. Bake for 8 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven, and use a spoon to carefully flatten and spread the cream cheese inside each cup.
  9. Top with a small spoonful of jelly, and then bake for another 2-4 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
  11. Enjoy!
