Fancy Phyllo Cup Recipe

Phyllo dough is great for making eye-catching desserts with a little work. Experiment with other preserves for a tasty twist on these fancy sweet treats.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings


  • 8 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry preserves, room temperature
  • White chocolate curls, optional


  • 1. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface (keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out); brush sheet with butter and dust with confectioners' sugar. Top with a second sheet of phyllo; brush with butter and dust with sugar.
  • 2. Cut into 12 squares. Place one square on top of a second square, alternating corner points; press into a greased muffin cup. Repeat with remaining 10 squares, filling five more muffin cups. Repeat the process three times with remaining phyllo dough, butter and sugar.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 5-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
  • 4. In a microwave, melt baking chips with milk; stir until smooth. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and melted chip mixture until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
  • 5. Spoon or pipe into phyllo cups; drizzle with raspberry preserves. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Garnish with chocolate curls if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.

"These were amazing! I changed it up a little. I filled the cups about halfway and then put fresh fruit the rest of the way (blueberries & one strawberry). I also put a little sprinkle of powdered sugar over the top. They were delicious and everyone loved them! I'll certainly make these pretty little desserts again!"
