Camembert and Rose to the Grindstone Phyllo Cups


 

 

Adapted from Smucker's

This easy appetizer combines everything you'd serve on a cheese plate into one elegant, scrumptious bite: cheese, jam, fruit and crispy base. Camembert and Rose to the Grindstone pair beautifully together and the strawberry lends a fresh tartness, which we recommend with a dry white wine or something sparkling.
