Feta Custard in Phyllo Cups

"This originally came from Better Homes & Gardens. These little guys were scarfed up in no time at a party I made them for. Everyone raved about them! I personally couldn't keep away from them and ate quite a few! :) The filling can also be mixed by hand if you don't have an electric mixer and don't mind a few small lumps."

  1. Fabulous! I made these for a starter for our Easter Day Lunch today, and they were all gone by the time we were ready for our second aperitif drinks!! I made them exactly as written, and used my small cake/bun trays for them. We all loved the "Tapenade" type topping. A real keeper - thanks flower7 - an easy and elegant starter! Thanks for posting this recipe. FT:-)
  2. These are fabulous! I made them recently and got rave reviews. They are also very easy to make.


I have a degree in archaeology from a small Ohio college and I work for the Ohio History Connection. My passions are art, music, books, food, history, and cats/animal welfare. I also love photography. I have a 1,000 (plus) piece collection of vintage flower pins from the 1960's, hence the username ha. I also have small collections of vintage butterfly pins, vintage tablecloths, and vintage glass Christmas ornaments. (Can you tell I love vintage?) I took a trip to the Netherlands in March 2006 and fell in love! I doubt it will happen but if I ever have the opportunity I would love to live there.
