Ingredients

4 sheets of phyllo dough

Melted butter

Topping possibilities - soft fruit like strawberries, papaya or kiwi sliced and marinated in sugar, Whipped cream; some softened ice cream, or some honey and chopped pistachios.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lay a sheet of phyllo dough out flat. Pick it up from the center as if it were a handkerchief. Continue with remaining 3 sheets. Set it down on a baking pan and twist and flatten the center down to create a free form "nest" of phyllo. Brush with butter and bake for 20 minutes or until crackling crisp and golden. Serve one per person and top with fruit, whipped cream or ice cream or drizzle with honey and scatter with chopped pistachios, almonds or walnuts.
