Cranberry Crab Phyllo Cups

I served these Cranberry Grab Phyllo Cups 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...
Yield: 15 appetizers

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes


  • 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).
