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
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 package phyllo dough, cut into large squares
1/4 – 1/2 C safflower oil
Peaches cooking in pan.
- 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).
Cut low-amine pears into small, thin pieces.
- 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.
