Won Ton Baskets Supreme Appetizer|

"a make ahead hors d'oeuvre - Any filling of your choice can be used, however, the combination of garlic, mushrooms and Brie are a perfect match and very flavorful."
Won Ton wrappers
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 pound mushrooms (any type will do), finely chopped
4 or 5 cloves minced garlic
Kosher Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup Brie cheese
5 slices smoked salmon lox
Preheat oven to 375° degrees F.
Using scissors, trim the won ton wrappers to approximately 2 1/2-inch squares. Spray a miniature muffin tin with olive oil; spray the won ton wrappers lightly and put into muffin tin (I use a clean cork from a wine bottle to gently press the won tons into the muffin tin). Bake for approximately 7 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. The won ton baskets can be made a day ahead. Cover and store at room temperature.
In a large frying pan, melt butter; saute the mushrooms, garlic, salt, and pepper until there is no more liquid left. Remove from heat and cool; spoon into prepared won ton baskets.
For each won ton basket: pinch off a small piece of brie cheese; place it on top of the mushroom mixture. Cut a small triangle piece of smoked salmon lox and drape it on top of the cheese. Just before serving, preheat oven to 350° degrees F. Place into oven just long enough to melt the brie cheese. Remove from oven, sprinkle parsley on top of each basket and serve warm.
