Pecan, Cranberry, & Mahon-Menorca Semi-Cured Cheese Phyllo Shells

December 18, 2018

I put this appetizer together the other night while we were grilling steaks with friends, it was a big hit and at the end of the night there were 2 left.

There were only 4 of us and 28 of these by the way.

The sweetness from the honey and cranberries pairs well with the sharp taste of Mahon Menorca cheese.

Even better than the taste though, it took 8 minutes from start to finish to put this together.

Pecan, Cranberry, Mahon-Menorca Semi-Cured Cheese Phyllo Shells

2 pkgs of 14 count mini phyllo dough shells
Mahon-Menorca Semi-Cured Cheese - cut into 28 small cubes
1/2 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
honey, for drizzling

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, place phyllo mini shells onto the pan. Place one cube of Mahon-Menorca Semi-Cured cheese in each shell. Sprinkle in chopped pecans and cranberries. Bake for 5 -7 minutes, until cheese is melted. Drizzle with honey and serve.

*if you can't find the shells you can easily make them in a mini muffin tin with sheets of phyllo dough.
