Baked Brie Fillo Shells with Fig Preserves

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

Baked Brie Fillo Shells with Fig Preserves2

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


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Remove the Mini Fillo Shells from their plastic container and transfer them onto a small baking sheet.
  3. Break the brie into small pieces, about 1 teaspoon each, and place one in each shell.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
