Low Amine Peach and Pear Phyllo Pockets

These light, crisp desserts are flaky and just sweet enough. I find that desserts, low-amine or not, are often much too sweet for my tastes. This recipe has no added sugar, and lets the fruits speak for themselves.

2 peaches (I used frozen slices, since peaches aren’t in season yet)

1 C water

2 pears

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 package phyllo dough, cut into large squares

1/4 – 1/2 C safflower oil

  • Thaw phyllo dough, and set oil aside in a small ramekin with a pastry brush.
  • Add cut peaches to pan with water and cook, covered, on medium.
  • Once peaches are broken down (about 10 minutes), mash.

Mash peaches. Also, this is the most AMAZING masher I have ever owned. Get one if you don't already have one. You'll love it.

  • Add nutmeg, cinnamon, and pears. Continue to cook, covered, on medium low, until pears have softened (about 15 minutes).

  • Stir often to prevent burning. Once fruit is softened, remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Each pastry will require four squares of phyllo each. Brush a light layer of oil between each layer of phyllo dough.
  • Add about 1/4 C peach/pear mixture in to the phyllo square in the bottom left corner, toward center. Fold it into an envelope, and seal shut with a little oil.
