We are in Istanbul!!! Oh my God, what a long, long journey it was! It was totally worth it though, to come back to the city where we first met and fell in love! I will tell the whole story one day!
We are jet lagged and also trying to deny it. I’ve been away from the blog for some days now and I miss everyone and everything! So here I am with a wonderful treat!
Have you ever seen these phyllo cups? They can be found in the frozen dessert aisle and are made of phyllo dough which also comes in form of sheets. They are crispy, very delicate and fun to work with! We got some of these phyllo cups when we were in Seattle and made a couple of treats with them!
One was these cute and oh-my-god-so-delicious pecan and brie phyllo cups that came together in 15 minutes. How did they happen? Just knowing our favorite flavors and textures.
We love cheese in general. There is rarely a type of cheese out there that we don’t like. And, I have recently learned to appreciate the combination of sweet and salty. So I placed a cube of brie in each phyllo cup, added a pecan half to give more crunch and taste, then baked it in the oven for 15 minutes. Voila! That’s it! I also drizzled it with honey, which gave these brie phyllo cups a tremendous amount of flavor.
When you eat one of these brie phyllo cups, all you can think of is, “how is it possible that something this small tastes so delicious?” Because this is an explosion of flavor and texture. The sweetness of honey is the first thing you taste, then with the first chew comes the crispiness of pecan and the phyllo cup, smothered with ooey-gooey brie in the middle. Do I need to say more?
Honestly, brie makes everything better!
