Easy last minute appetizer!

So I totally forgot there's a Christmas block party today, and I'm supposed to bring aps - dug through the fridge, and here's what I did -

4 oz each cream cheese and firm goat cheese, and softened brie w/rind removed
3 tablespoons grated parm
1/2 stick butter
About 6 cloves of roasted garlic (thank you, Whole Foods!)
About 2 tablespoons half and half
salt, pepper
about a teaspoon each, onion powder, dried oregano and basil
About 2 tablespoons dried parsley

Whizzed it all in the processor, then filled the Athens phyllo cups with the mixture, and put a little roast red pepper strip on top.

Hubbie likes it - he licked the spatula before I was done with it!

Lol, Constance - Well, you could have done 'walk arounds' with crockpots full of chili and hot drinks!

BTW, it's South Carolina, not Southern Cali !

Here is real quick one

Take a 8 oz brick of cream cheese
place it on a serving tray
Take one bottle of cocktail sauce and one can of baby shrimp(drained if in a liquid) mix them together
pour over the cream cheese Optional a sprig of parsley for decor
and place Triscuit crackers all around it.
I have mixed up the sauce and the shrimp - put in into a container and then when i got to where i was going i place it on the plate. If you want to have it all made on the serving tray before you get there- don't put the crackers on till you get there, they might get soggy.
I have never had any left.
Happy Holidays to all

I've never used canned shrimp. Are they tasty? I usually get mine boiled at the supermarket. They are great!

Marm:

Pardon my ignorance. Did you pre-bake the phyllo cups of bake them filled? Time and temp?
