Using phyllo cups is one of the best dessert party tricks. Do you know how to make phyllo cups? you can get far more out of a regular package of phyllo, by making your cups. It doesn't take long to make the cups in whichever size you want. You can as well make your cups ahead and keep them. Once sealed in an airtight container, they stay fresh for a week. Alternatively, you can buy the little phyllo cups at the grocery store.
Recipes with phyllo are easy to prepare. Phyllo dough is made of thin sheets. Once you have baked them, they are easy to fill with all sorts of good things. It's quick to pipe in a pretty filling or dab in some cream. Larger sizes phyllo cups are great for egg salad or tuna, and the mini sizes make the perfect small bites suitable for a party.
Brie is more appealing when cut into pieces. When you are going out to brie; look out for specialist cheese shops, or groceries in supermarkets. How do you know if the cheese you are buying is suitable? The only sure way is by you tasting it. While in the shop, don't be afraid to ask for samples to feel to be exactly sure of what you are buying. Select brie that is less than 1 inch thick. If it’s too thick, the centre could be underripe.it should also have a sweet odor.
The length of flavor characterizes a good cheese. Meaning that once you taste it for the first time, the flavor will last with you for a while rather than disappearing straight away. In any cheese you should look for a balance of flavors.
To store your cheese correctly, wrap it in wax paper. Covering helps to protect it as well as allow some air to breathe. Once you have packaged it well, place it in the lowest point of your fridge. If improperly stored, it may end up locking in moisture and thus promoting mold development
