3 sheets phyllo, thawed

1/2 cup clarified butter

1/4 cup sugar

16 pitted dried plums

16 toasted almonds

4 ounces cream cheese, cubed into 16 pieces

Powdered sugar, as a garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Lay a sheet of phyllo on a cutting board with the short part facing you and brush lightly with clarified butter then sprinkle with sugar. Cut into 4 long, even strips.
  3. Open up each dried plum and place a cube of cream cheese and a toasted almond inside. Place a stuffed dried plum at the end of each strip of phyllo. Fold it up to make a triangle, like folding a flag. Brush the outside with butter and sprinkle with more sugar.
  4. Repeat with the rest of the phyllo. Bake until light golden brown about 20 to 30 minutes. Serve warm, if possible, sprinkled with powdered sugar.
