Pesto Feta Phyllo Cups are a simple appetizer that is sure to impress. Store-bought phyllo cups make this recipe so easy. Filled with a tasty pesto feta cream cheese filling that you can even prep in advance. Green pesto paired with red sun dried tomatoes makes for a festive Christmas themed appetizer for your next holiday party.



Cups and Topping

  • 3 boxes Phyllo Cups, 45 total
  • 1/4 cup chopped Sun Dried Tomatoes

Pesto Feta Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 4 ounces Feta
  • 1/4 cup Pesto
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • Ground Black Pepper


  1. Bake Shells. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line shells on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 3-5 minutes until golden brown.
  2. Make Filling. Add cream cheese and feta to food processor. Blend until combined. Add pesto, olive oil, lemon juice, and black pepper to taste. Blend again until smooth.
  3. Pipe Filling. Add filling to a piping bag or tiptop bag with the corner cut off and pipe filling into the baked phyllo cups.
  4. Top with Sun Dried Tomatoes. Top with chopped sun dried tomatoes.
  5. Serve and Enjoy


Leftovers – Leftover cups can be stored in an airtight container for about 3 days. The cups will lost some of their crispness.

Prepare in Advance – The filling can be mixed a day or two in advance, although you should bake the shells and fill just before serving.
