I am so in love with phyllo cups, they turn whatever your making into something so elegant and delightful to eat all on their own. They have this amazing soft, flaky shell perfect for a lite appetizer. You can put anything in these adorable mini shells and it turns something ordinary into something extraordinary. That is why when I made these Chicken Mini Phyllo Cups for a get together at my church people could not get enough of them.
