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! I got the idea from a blog for our local newspaper.
Pimento Cheese and Pepper Jelly Phyllo Cups
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 (I used Trader Joe’s brand)
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 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.
Pimento cheese…love, not so much or never tried?
