Phyllo cups + Crab salad

Need an easy appetizer idea for a party? Try making these!  

I really like phyllo dough and I really like crab and I said hey! why not put them together.

First you need a package of Phyllo dough. Let it thaw in the fridge overnight.

Melt butter in a bowl in the microwave. The amount of butter will depend on how many cups you're making. For 24 cups I used 2 and a half tsb of butter.

Cut squares of Phyllo dough and layer 5 pieces on top of each other brushing butter on each sheet.

In a mini muffin pan, push the layered dough in each section to form a cup-like shape and bake for 15 minutes or until edges are brown.

 Crab Salad
You will need: 

Crab (Imitation or real crab)
1/2 an Onion
1 Green Pepper
1 tsp of Olive Oil
2 tsb of olive oil mayonnaise (or regular mayonnaise)
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Chop the crab into small bits and place in a bowl
2. Finely chop the onion and the pepper and add to the crab
3. Add 1 tsp of Olive oil, 2 tsb of mayo and salt and pepper to taste to the crab and slowly mix together or else the crab will break into super small pieces. 
4. Put in the fridge for at least half an hour and then it's ready to go!

Put a spoon of the crab salad in each Phyllo cup at the time that you serve them. If you put it in beforehand it will make the Phyllo cups soggy.

Serve and enjoy!
