I’m back from my week in the bay area. It was great. I went shopping, I went eating and I went walking around anytime I had a free minute from work. I loved it despite the terrible, cold and cloudy weather. I think I would move there in an heartbeat.
So today I am telling you about a simple dessert perfect for a quick breakfast or for a dessert for a last minute dinner. just a couple of simple ingredients and you can whip up something sweet in less than 30 min!
- 10 sheets phillo dough
- 2 tbs. butter
- Melt the butter and use it to brush each phillo dough sheet. Stack the sheet on top of each other and cut into squares. In the center of each square put a spoon of jam, fold the phillo dough in half and seal it. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and enjoy!
- For great homemade jam clean, pit and cut about 1 pound of your favorite fruit. Weight the cleaned fruit and put it in a bowl. Weight an amount of sugar equal to half the weight of the fruit (1/2 pound sugar for 1 pound fruit) and add it to the bowl. Mix rest and let rest for 4-8 hours (overnight would be great). After the resting simmer the fruit for about 30 min or until it thickens up and jar it. If you plan on saving it for a long time, you should sterilize the jar.
