Total Time: 20 MIN Makes: 6 shells
Prep Time: 10 MIN Cook Time: 10 MIN

These versatile pastries with a light, flaky crust can take on a sweet or savory filling.

  • 12 sheets Athens® Phyllo Dough (9″x 14″), thawed
  • Cooking spray, as needed
  • 3 cups savory or sweet filling


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lay one sheet of phyllo on the work surface. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Repeat with seven more sheets of phyllo. Lightly spray a 4-ounce muffin pan. Cut the layered phyllo into four, 4 1/2″ X 7″ rectangles and press each rectangle stack into a cavity of the pan.

Layer four more sheets of phyllo spraying lightly. Cut the layered phyllo in half horizontally. Stack the two halves on top of each other. Cut the stacked phyllo in half to create two rectangles. Press the two rectangles stacks into two cavities of the pan. Lightly spray the top of each shell.

Bake the phyllo shells for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp. Fill the shells with one half cup of an appetizer or dessert filling. Serve immediately.
