Phyllo Baskets

by Kate Heyhoe

 

You can make these up to two days in advance and store air tight. For smaller baskets, use mini-muffin tins and cut the phyllo into 3-1/2 inch squares. Standard muffins tins need 5 to 6 inch squares.

Note:
Before proceeding, read the Phyllo Tips section for best success. If you're baking phyllo cups or phyllo baskets in advance, avoid filling them until just before serving. Moist contents will cause the phyllo to become soggy.

 

Instructions:
Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly coat the muffin tins with nonstick vegetable spray or oil.

Working quickly, lightly coat four sheets of phyllo with melted butter or olive oil and stack together. Cut into squares as desired. Press the squares into the muffin tins, pressing down on the bottom and sides.

Bake until crisp, about 7 to 10 minutes (be careful not to burn them). Let cool in the tins before removing. Store air-tight until ready to use.

 

Suggested fillings:

    Avocado, feta cheese, cherry tomato half
    Chicken, crab or shrimp salad
    Grilled vegetables
    Peas, carrots and green onions
    Scrambled eggs with diced ham and chives
    Julienned lettuce or spinach, marinated artichoke hearts and red peppers
    Mascarpone cheese and grapes
    Apple, cheese and hazelnut salad
