Need a super easy appetizer for your next holiday gathering? If so, you’ll definitely want to give these bite-sized phyllo cups a try. The flavours of warm, melted Brie and sweet dark cherries are enhanced with a slight hint of maple syrup.
For a more complex and savory flavour combination, add some fresh thyme leaves to each cup prior to baking.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place phyllo cups on sheet and add one piece of Brie to each cup.
Top off each cup with an equal amount of chopped cherries and reserved juice.
Drizzle a little maple syrup over each cup and place in preheated oven for 7 – 9 minutes, or until Brie is completely melted.
