It tasted just as good as it looked – and it took approximately 2 1/2 minutes to put together. What more could you ask of a dessert?
A secret to be shared: begin with a package of prepared phyllo shells, frozen or from the grocery shelf. Mix together 1/2 cup crême fraîche with 2 tablespoons of bought lemon curd. (If you make such things yourself go right ahead and use that, but just know, I’m out of your league!) Add a pinch of cinnamon if you like.
Fill the phyllo cups with the mixture. Then top attractively with blueberries or raspberries or strawberries. Tap a strainer holding confectioner’s sugar over all until it looks as “snowy” as you like. Serve, and stand back.
One package of phyllo shells contains 15 of these little crunchy lovelies. Since they’re about 2 bites each, better buy a lot. And I’m telling you — yum.
