Baked Brie Fillo Shells with Fig Preserves


Total Time:



One of my favorite parts about the holidays is Baked Brie!

It’s an epic appetizer and I  could seriously eat the entire wheel of brie in one sitting. But that’s the problem – it’s clearly not the best decision to eat an entire wheel of baked Brie, so I invented these crazy cute Baked Brie Fillo Shells with Fig Preserves! It’s essentially a mini baked Brie topped with my all time favorite preserve… Fig! Then I add a little sprig of thyme on top and an almond to give it a little more crunch! And that’s about it.

These are the easiest and most delectable appetizers for any kind of holiday party!

Baked Brie Fillo Shells with Fig Preserves



  • 15 Mini Fillo Shells 1 package
  • 6 oz. brie cheese about 1 wedge
  • ¼ cup fig preserves
  • ¼ cup whole almonds
  • a few sprigs of thyme for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Remove the Mini Fillo Shells from their plastic container and transfer them onto a small baking sheet.
  • Break the brie into small pieces, about 1 teaspoon each, and place one in each shell.
  • Transfer the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 5 minutes, until the brie is just slightly starting to melt. You don’t want to over heat the brie as then it will be too loose.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully spoon a little dab of fig preserves on top of each piece of brie. Add an almond on top, and a few thyme leaves and serve immediately.

    I LOVE baked brie. I have always had it with apricot jam, so the use of fig is a new and lovely twist for me!

    I made something similar last week, topping with a mixture of dried cranberries, chopped walnuts, and honey. It was a great way to use up leftover Brie and goat cheese after you’ve served them to guests and the remains aren’t very attractive.

    Ahh! I’m a sucker for brie and cute things, so I’m making these immediately. Also, I can’t really put out a wheel of brie without eating a disgusting amount, so these seem much more responsible.
