Why Brie and Dark Cherry?

I’ve enjoyed a variety of flavorful phyllo cup bites at special events. Some have been sweet while others are savory. I love the option of both to balance the two. Brie, often known as the Queen of Cheese, is a velvety cheese with a fluffy white rind and smooth interior. It’s made with either cow or goat milk and has a subtle nutty flavor.

Dark cherries are a deeper mahogany color that typical cherries. Traditionally, the darker they are, the more intense the flavor. The vibrant colors draw the eye in, making these one of the top-loved appetizers I’ve ever served my party guests.
