This is a brilliant little bite that I wish I had created, but all the kudos go to Pattie at Olla Podrida

Fillo cups are so handy to use, provide a great vehicle for serving appetizers without being heavy

We love artichokes and I serve them with a sauce that is very similar to the filling in these little pies

All you need is frozen artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, garlic powder, black pepper and grated Italian cheese

Cook the artichoke hearts, drain and chop.  Put them in a mixing bowl with all the other ingredients except cheese.

Here is a similar recipe that includes chicken,  Artichoke Chicken Tartlettes.    These are made with pie crust but you could use fillo shells instead for a lighter bite.  My friend Ellen, Color My World,  made them with fillo shells and took them to a party where they were a big hit

Artichoke Mystery Bites are made with chopped artichokes, breadcrumbs, egg and cheese

My favorite way to serve artichokes is simple, just the cooked artichoke leaves with a dipping sauce.  See Artichokes with Dreamy Lemon Sauce here

Enjoy!
