Cooking with Brie
- The most important thing is make sure the Brie cheese has been chilled in the freezer for about an hour! Brie is a super soft cheese, and it can be difficult to get even and clean diced pieces if the cheese is too soft. By popping it in the freezer you’ll be able to easily dice it into bite-sized chunks.
- These are the phyllo cups you need to look for. They are so cute and really elevate the look of the appetizer. You can use them for savory or sweet snacks, and they don’t need to be cooked!
- These are best eaten the day they are made, and try to serve them as soon as you can from taking them out of the oven. I don’t recommend storing them in the fridge, they will lose their crispiness and become soggy.
While the Brie is chilling in the freezer, you can get started on prepping for the rest of the recipe! Cook your bacon strips to the level of crispiness you like, make the raspberry compote, and preheat your oven.
Then, once the Brie is to the right consistency you can breeze through the rest of the recipe!
These adorable Brie bites hit all the right flavor notes: buttery Brie, sweet raspberries, and salty bacon. Set out a plate of these at your next party and watch them disappear!

- Yield: 30 phyllo cups

- Method: Baking
- Cuisine: American
8oz wheel of Brie cheese
2 boxes of 15 count phyllo cups
5-6 slices of bacon
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon white vinegar
2 teaspoons corn starch
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1. Freeze the Brie cheese for one hour to make it easier to dice.
2. When the freeze time for the Brie is almost up, place the 30 phyllo cups on a baking sheet and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
3. Cook the bacon strips in a large frying pan, I like crispy bacon which takes about 10 minutes for me. Once the bacon is cooked to your liking, remove and place on a paper towel lined plate and dab with a paper towel to remove excess grease. Once bacon is cooled to the touch, crumble into small pieces.
4. To make the raspberry preserve spread, place the 1 cup of raspberries into a small pot over medium-low heat and mash with a fork. Add the water and the white sugar and continue to mash until the raspberries have broken down completely. Stir in the corn starch, brown sugar, and vinegar and cook for about 2 minutes, then pour into a bowl to let cool.
5. To prepare the Brie cheese, remove from packaging and slice off the rind. Dice the wedge into small squares that can git into the phyllo cups. Place one cheese square into each phyllo cup, you should have some cheese squares leftover. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and fill any cup that looks low with another small square of cheese. Top with the raspberry preserves and crumbled bacon. Bake another 10 minutes.
The Brie cheese needs to freeze for an hour before making this. If you don’t it’s going to be pretty difficult and messy trying to dice it into the little squares that fit in the phyllo cups.

The Preserves just clashed with the cheese, but just the cheese and bites were amazing.
Bummer you didn’t like the flavor of the raspberry and Brie! Thanks for trying them 🙂
