Cranberry- Crab Phyllo Cups

I served these at a girl’s get-together in the fall and we all loved them. I was a little worried about mixing cranberry and crab, but they were delicious together.

Cranberry- Crab Phyllo Cups

Simple and delicious fall appetizer...


1/2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
1/3 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup minced crab meat
2 Tablespoons finely chopped green onions
15 mini phyllo shells, thawed


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place phyllo cups on a cookie sheet.

2. Scoop cranberry sauce into a small bowl. Stir gently with a fork until smooth.

3. Combine cream cheese, crab, and onion in another bowl. Fill each shell with about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture. Top with 1/2 teaspoon of sauce.

4. Bake for 10 minutes.


*Look for the mini-phyllo shells in your market's freezer section (near the puff pastry). Sometimes they're only carried seasonally (fall holiday time).
