Phyllo Cups makes about approx. 50 mini cupsPreheat oven to 375F. Spray mini muffin cups lightly with baking spray. Take a sheet of Phyllo and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Lay another sheet on top and repeat until you have five sheets stacked up. Cut into small equal squares and press into cups. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden. Watch carefully and don’t let them burn. 

Take out and twist out of cups. Reserve. Keep doing until you are out of PhylloReduce oven temperature to 350F. Cut Brie cheese into 50 very small pieces. Spoon around ½ tsp of Brennan’s Sweet and Hot Pepper Relish into each shell; top with cheese. Garnish each tartlet with sliced almonds.

*Cheese Board Slicer works really well for this.
