Today, I’m bringing you an appetizer, Cranberry Pistachio Stuffed Brie Wrapped in Phyllo. Every Christmas Eve for as long as I can remember, we have appetizers and Shrimp Bisque Soup for dinner.  It may just be my favorite meal of the year.  It may just beat out Thanksgiving!  I just adore small bits of food.  Small bites mean I can have lots of different flavors and textures without a lot of food.  What better way is there to have a little taste of everything?  Christmas Eve would not be complete without cheese.  We are a cheese loving family, but it isn’t exactly light. So cheese is delegated to special occasions, just like Christmas Eve.  Brie is classically wrapped in puff pastry, but phyllo is lower in calories and fat. Phyllo still gives that delicious crunch you want with ooey, gooey cheese.

I bet Santa would be just as happy with a big piece of phyllo wrapped brie as he would be with cookies.  Who wouldn’t be?  I’m not sure my 8 yr old daughter would be willing to share brie, even with Santa.  I think we will be sticking with the cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.  What do you leave for Santa?

  2. I totally LOVE brie. It is one of those dishes I must serve over the holidays so I can eat my fill. Can't wait to try it wrapped in phyllo- oh-my!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Thanks Amy. I have made a few and froze them. We made one for our Christmas party this past weekend. Now I've got one already made for Christmas eve.
  3. This contains some of my most favorite ingredients and it looks gorgeous. Thanks for the share.
  4. There is just nothing better than melted Brie in phyllo. Seriously, I could sit down and eat this whole thing!
  5. This is just beautiful and would be the star of the appetizer table! :)
  6. What a beautiful holiday appetizer! It doesn't get much better than phyllo wrapped brie!
  7. Christie, I love that this is wrapped in phyllo and not puff pastry--in my opinion not only is it a lighter option, but also a tastier one!
  8. Can this be made with gluten free pie crust instead?
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Cindy, I really do not know if it would work with gluten free pie crust. I would be concerned that the pie crust would crack.
