"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly spray 12 muffin tins with vegetable spray. On a flat working surface, stack 6 phyllo sheets and cut into 6 (4-inch) squares, forming a total of 36 squares. Using a pastry brush, dab a phyllo square with melted butter. Press another phyllo square on top of the first making sure the corners are at different angles. Repeat with a third piece of phyllo. Press the phyllo into the cups. Bake until golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes. Allow to cool.

For the herbed goat cheese:
In a medium sized microwave-proof bowl, place the goat cheese and the cream cheese. Microwave until softened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Using a spatula or whisk, mix in the olive oil, garlic, basil, and black pepper until smooth.

To assemble:
Place a dollop of the goat cheese mixture in each phyllo cup. Top each cup with arugula leaves and garnish with orange segments and English breakfast radishes.
