Pineapple Flower Cups!!

I am reposting this recipe as requested by Monisha for the SHF Event .


To be frank, I am making this recipe for the first time. Most of the recipes in this blog like the laddus, Sandesh and cutlets are all trial and success recipes. So one more added to the list are these beautiful flowers filled with pinapple chunks, topped with whipped cream, honey and strawberry syrup.
This one is for the AFAM- a fruit a month by Maheswari, which is pineapple.
Like the other recipes of mine this too takes very less time to make.


Ingredients
Phyllo dough
2 cups chopped pineapple
Whipped cream
Honey
Strawberry syrup

Preparation

Phyllo sheets can be easily obtained in the frozen section of any grocery stores.
Layer 3 sheets evenly above each other and cut them with knife or cookie cutter into round shapes. I used wide mouthed glass and knife to cut out rounds. Place them in muffin baking trays and bake them for 7 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F.
They bake into beautiful golden brown, crisp flowers. Remove from oven and let it cool.

Remove the cups gently and place them in a platter. Spoon the pineapple chunks into the cups and top them with whipped cream and drizzle up with honey and strawberry syrup.


This recipe is inspired from Giada De Laurentiis of Food Network.

beautiful and delicious at the same time!!! love your presentation.

Suganya said...

Clever idea.. The tartness of the pineapple should balance the blandness of the phyllo cups. Thanks for the idea.

QuantumJourno said...

They look soo good! They shd do very well with a good cup of Indian black tea. This post of mine has links for people who don't know how to make Indian style tea:
