Brie In Phyllo With Fresh Lemon Marmalade

 

This makes a great start to a wonderful evening.

  • Phyllo dough
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • Egg White lightly beaten
  • 1 cup finely chopped pistachio nuts (enough for both the inside and out)
  • Brie Cheese (outer skin removed) cut in small squares

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lay a sheet of phyllo dough on a flat surface and brush lightly with melted butter. Sprinkle finely chopped nuts over the surface and add the second sheet of phyllo dough and lightly brush with melted butter.

Cut into 2 inch squares.  Place a square of the cheese in the center and fold into a triangle. Make sure to brush the edges with water and press to make sure they have sealed.  Place in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes.

 

Warm Lemon Marmalade

2 tbsp. freshly grated lemon peel

1  1/2 cups fresh lemon, chopped into small pieces

1 cup berry sugar

1  1/2 tsp. hot chili flakes

 

In a saucepan bring the sugar and fruit to a boil and simmer until it becomes thick.  Add the peppers. This will take about 40-4 5 minutes.

Serve the hot phyllo packets with the warm marmalade and Wow! Truly yummy. Make sure you have small plates and napkins for your guests.
