Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Beat first 5 ingredients with mixer until blended. Stack 4 phyllo sheets, brushing each sheet lightly with oil before stacking. Cut stack lengthwise in half, then crosswise into thirds to make 6 (4-inch) squares. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets.
  • Spoon 1 rounded tsp. cream cheese mixture onto center of each stack; gather 4 points, then pinch just above filling to seal. Place, 1 inch apart, on baking sheet. Refrigerate 15 min.
  • Heat oven to 375ºF. Bake purses 10 to 12 min. or until golden brown.

Special Equipment Needed

Make Ahead

Cream cheese mixture can be made ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours before using as directed.

Special Extra

Tie each pouch with fresh chive or blanched green onion strip before serving.

How to Purchase, Store and Use Fresh Chives

Chives have a mild onion flavor that complements a variety of dishes. Look for chives with a vivid green color and no signs of wilting. Wrapped in damp paper towels and stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, chives should keep for up to 1 week. Keep chives long and wispy or snip to desired length with clean kitchen scissors.
