Berry-Filled Phyllo Flowers
“This makes a beautiful Fourth of July finale,” recommends Marjorie Hennig of Green Valley, Arizona.
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min. + cooling
- 4 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
- 1 teaspoon butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
- Additional fresh berries
- Coat two 10-oz. custard cups with cooking spray. Place on a baking sheet.
- Place sheets of phyllo dough in a single layer on a work surface; coat with cooking spray. Cut in half widthwise. Layer four pieces in each custard cup, alternating corner points (allow ends to hang over edge). Brush phyllo cups with butter. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
- Bake at 375° for 7-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing phyllo cups to a wire rack to cool completely.
- For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar, orange juice and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in the strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Spoon into flower cups. Top with additional berries. Serve immediately.
