Today: An almost-instant snack that will bring you nothing but joy -- plus, a way to use up all of those half-empty jam jars.

For an almost-instant snack, I like to bundle my beautiful preserves into flaky phyllo pastry. You can also add a nugget of cheese for a special kind of deliciousness. These two-bite charmers are welcome snacks at any time of day.
Whenever the refrigerator is being overrun with jars of tiny amounts of preserves, I settle in to make some Bundles of Joy. This recipe makes a lot -- freeze the extras to be popped into the oven and ready in minutes. Phyllo is available in boxes of full-size or half-size sheets. The half sheets make 6 bundles per every 4 sheets; the full size will make 12 bundles from 4 sheets.
