What are Phyllo Cups?

These cups are made from tissue-paper thin leaves of phyllo dough (filo dough) pastry stacked atop one another to form a mini shell. Phyllo dough is a traditional Greek ingredient used to make classic recipes such as baklava and strudel.

Phyllo cups are light, buttery, flaky and incredibly crispy! They can be filled with all sorts of ingredients, from savory to sweet, to create fun appetizers or desserts!

An Easy Appetizer

I love that you can whip these up in minutes and have a sophisticated app that the entire party will love. These would be perfect for tailgating, holiday parties, baby showers, the list goes on and on. Yum!

We had a little wine tasting party at our house last weekend (Pat calls it a BBQ…I call it a Wine Tasting Party…he has to keep his man card) and these little beauties were one of my favorite pairings! Cheese and wine are just a match made in heaven. Creamy Boursin and Prosciutto Phyllo Cups for the win!

Where can I find Phyllo Cups in the grocery store?

It is used in many dessert pasteries such as baklava and spanakopita. You can find the dough in many grocery store frozen food areas.

Top Tips

  • When frying the prosciutto you don’t need oil, the prosciutto will produce enough fat to fry in.
  • Mix things up! You can go for different toppings and flavors of Boursin.
  • Serve with a crisp white wine, goes so well!
  • Make sure to prepare enough for your guests, a rule of thumb is 3 per guest, but feel free to be more generous if you want!
