One of the things that I love the very most about yoga is the community that it creates. On Sunday I had the honor of attending a baby shower for a fellow teacher. It was the biggest baby shower I’ve ever been to with over 50 teachers and students in attendance. It was a special day!

How fabulous is the diaper cake? Sweet.
Cupcake tower. I may or may not have brought four of these home with me! 😉
Butterscotch scones. PERFECTION! I had two!
I contributed two appetizers for the shower. The first was a feta dip that I served in individual cups with celery and carrot sticks and pita chips. I loved presenting these in individual servings instead of a big bowl of dip.
And these addictive and delicious little phyllo cups filled with pimento cheese and topped with pepper jelly.
They were a hit and I will definitely be serving them again and again for parties and showers. They were so easy and the presentation was cute. I think you could take them over the top with a sprinkle of bacon!
Here’s the recipe…it’s easy!Print
A delicious bite-sized appetizer of phyllo cups filled with pimento cheese and topped with pepper jelly!
- 2 packages of mini phyllo shells (I used the Athens brand that come 15 to a pack)
- 1 1/2 cups pimento cheese (homemade or store bought)
- 1/2 cup pepper jelly
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Remove shells from freezer and fill with pimento cheese.
- Bake for 10 minutes and then remove from oven and top with a little dollop of pepper jelly.
- Serve warm or at room temp.
If my non-Southern readers haven’t experienced pimento cheese…you are missing out! Please give it a try. It’s one of my favorite things that my grandmother makes for me. It’s good on crackers or in a sandwich.
