Coconut Pecan Bites in Phyllo ShellsJump to Recipe
I love using Phyllo Shells for both sweet and savory appetizers and treats. One of our go to appetizer recipes is an easy recipe for Bacon Cheese and Tomato Bites using Phyllo Shells.
For these sweet bites, the shells are filled with a mixture of coconut, pecans, an egg white, vanilla, and sugar.
Preparing the mixture only takes minutes, using one bowl which is always great for quick clean up!
After mixing the ingredients together, fill each shell. I sprinkled more shredded coconut on top of each one so that they would have a nice toasted look and taste.
After baking for 15 minutes, add Christmas sprinkles to each one.
These are not overly sweet since the shells aren’t sweet at all. Coconut is the star of these little bites and the pecans add both flavor and texture.
Place each shell into a mini cupcake holder before serving.
These are the perfect size for a quick treat with a cup of coffee or to add to a Christmas dessert buffet.
