Late Night Snacks

Spicy Pomegranate Jam Phyllo Cups with Cream Cheese or Aged White Cheddar
Makes 3-4 Servings

Several sheets of phyllo dough, thawed
Spicy Pomegranate Jam*
Cream Cheese or Aged White Cheddar, cute into chunks

Preheat oven to 350 f degrees. Cut squares of phyllo according to size of pan you are using -- for a mini pan I cut about a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square. Using 3 sheets of cut phyllo, form to pan. Bake for 3-4 minutes, until edges lightly brown.

Add approx. 1/2 tsp. Pomegranate Jam to each cup. Add chunk of cheddar or cream cheese. Microwave for about 20 seconds for a full plate. Enjoy!

*Many awesome pepper jellies can be bought here (including the kind I used)

PS - Sorry for the shitty photo -- but I had to take it late at night. :o)
