Instructions
  1. Spread walnuts on a baking sheet in a single layer. Toast in the oven at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes, shaking the pan a few times to even out the walnuts, ensuring they are overlapping and will toast evenly.
  2. Place phyllo cups on a lined baking sheet. Place a cube of camembert cheese into each one. Bake in the oven at 350 until the cheese melts and edges begin to brown.
  3. Place a spoonful of blackberry jam on top of the camembert cheese. Top with toasted walnuts.
  4. Serve warm and enjoy!
