Cranberry-Brie Phyllo Triangles Recipe

A creamy fruit filling is tucked inside flaky phyllo dough in this special appetizer. One big batch never lasts long at my house!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1-1/4 cups butter, melted
  • 1 package (16 ounces, 18-inches x 14-inches sheet size) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups cranberry-orange sauce or whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 8 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed, cubed

Directions

  • 1. Cut phyllo sheets lengthwise into 2-in. strips; cut each strip in half widthwise. Using five strips at a time, brush each strip with butter and stack on top of one another. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with waxed paper to avoid drying out.) Place 1 teaspoon cranberry sauce and one to two cheese cubes at the end of each stack. Fold into a triangle as you would fold a flag.
  • 2. Place in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; brush with butter. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
