Once upon a time, the only appetizer I ever made was baked brie.

You know… the old classic wheel of brie wrapped in puff pastry and topped with jam or berries?

I had a special relationship with that molten bundle and it played the part of my escort to many a holiday gathering.

Yet as time progressed, I felt the need to branch out in my party food endeavors. For a few years I made appetizer after appetizer, each one more delectable than the one before.

Out of sight out of mind for baked brie?

Never. With baked brie, absence only made the heart grow fonder.

So I’ve brought it back with a vengeance, creating all sorts of baked brie recipes including this itty bitty spin on the classic.

In today’s recipe I used Athens Mini Fillo Shells to make easy-to-hold baked brie bites, that just might be the world’s easiest party snack.

With only four ingredients, and 5 minutes in the oven, I may never go back to baking the whole wheel of brie.

Crisp pastry, oozing cheese, tangy cranberry preserves, and salty pistachios.

I think I’ve struck baked brie gold!
