Baked Brie wrapped in phyllo is a perennial party favorite because of the perfect combination of gooey-good baked cheese and crisp, buttery pastry. We’ve taken it modern and mini, baking the Brie in individual phyllo cups (easier than working with sheets of phyllo) and adding a compote made with toasted pecans and red grapes roasted to intensify their flavor.



cups small red grapes
Tbsp vegetable oil
cup pecans
Tbsp fresh lemon juice, plus 1 tsp lemon zest
Kosher salt
1 8-oz
wheel Brie
2 1.9-oz
packages mini phyllo shells (about 30)
Coarsely ground black pepper


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Toss the grapes with the oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, tossing once, until the grapes burst and are very soft, 25 to 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, spread the pecans out on a second rimmed baking sheet, and bake until very golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool, then finely chop.

Step 3

Transfer the grapes to a small shallow bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving the oil behind. Stir in the lemon juice and zest and a pinch of salt; set aside to cool completely, then stir in the toasted pecans. (The compote can be made up to a day ahead and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before serving.)

Step 4

Cut off just the very edges of the Brie wheel to make a rough square (it is OK if some rind remains at the corners), then cut into 30 cubes. Put a cube in each phyllo cup, and put the cups on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

Step 5

Top each cup with some of the compote, and garnish with a dusting of pepper. Serve warm.
