How to make phyllo cups

Making phyllo cups at home is a simple and easy process with store-bought phyllo pastry sheet. Always handle pastry sheets carefully as these sheets are super thin they tear up easily. Unused pastry sheets has to be covered with damp cloth or clingfilm to prevent them from drying out. brush each phyllo pastry sheet with butter and cut them into squares, stack 2 squares in each mould of muffin tin and bake until golden and crispy. In this recipe I have used 2 squares for each cup, you may choose 5-6 squares to make each pastry cup.

Recipe Notes

You may stack up to 5-6 layers of phyllo sheet in each mould of muffin tin to get a extra thick phyllo cups.

Assemble the yogurt cherry phyllo cups just before you serve to prevent them from getting soggy and soft. Alternatively let guest assemble themselves.

Be sure to apply butter to muffin tin moulds. This not only helps brown the phyllo cups it also helps to remove these cups from moulds.

Don’t worry about making them look perfect as phyllo sheet will fold over in different spots and sometimes it will be sticking out of muffin moulds.

Phyllo cups, yogurt mixture can be made well in advance. If you plan to make phyllo cups the night before a party then keep these cups uncovered in cool and dry place to ensure they doesn’t lose their crunchiness.

This recipe can be easily modified to include any fruits and nuts of your choice.

You may use dry roasted nuts to get a toasty flavour.

In this recipe I have used store bought glace cherries you may swap it with fresh pitted cherries or cherry compote.

You may use piping bag to fill the yogurt in phyllo cups.

You may swap sugar with honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar or any sweetener of your choice.

Foe vegan version, substitute dairy yogurt with coconut yogurt or any plant based yogurt.
