“The following recipe is courtesy of Giada De Laurentis. Mini phyllo cups would also work well with this filling for smaller bite-size appetizers. Pastry shells may also be made using mini muffin cups with squares of puff pastry or puff pastry sheets may be cut into small squares to form pockets for the filling.”
