    I too, hate it when the grocery store doesn’t have the already made phyllo cups to use for an appetizer, but Have never tried your method….don’t think I will either. Thanks for letting us know what NOT to do.

    Another option is to put the squares into mini or regular muffin tins. Then you get little cups and don’t need the Great Wall.

    Laughing. Remembering for some reason the first time I had my in-laws to diner and made beef stroganoff.

    My father-in-law looked him suspiciously and demanded to know what it wsx, so I answered ‘Russian stew”.

    The next day my mother-in-law called to say I had made them sick and they only liked good old fashioned American food.

    Guess why I didn’t invite them to dinner again?

    THANK YOU for a wonderful laugh today! I think you improvised wonderfully…until, of course, you mucked with your mother’s advice. (Trust me, I’ve done it myself, and watched her shake her head afterwards.) 🙂

    In the future, if you want to do this and can’t find the phyllo cups. Get puff pastry, cut the Brie in the middle like a sandwich. Spread the jam and put the other half of cheese on top. Put cheese in the center of the puff pastry and fold, seal with an egg wash. Put in the over 350°F for about 20-30 minutes and serve with fruit and crackers.

    I laughed so hard over “bandaged train wreck victims” that my dog woke up! Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Your description of your baking was so perfect. Guess it’s going to be frozen appetizers for me.
