Trans-fat Free, High Fiber, Low Sodium


½ cup almonds
finely ground
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 large eggs
2 phyllo (filo) pastry sheets
2 cups strawberries
freshly sliced
1 tablespoon maple syrup
or sugar


Preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃).

In a food processor, add the almonds, flour, brown sugar and butter. Process until the almonds are finely ground and the mixture is well mixed. Stir in the egg until well blended. Set aside.

Place one phyllo pastry onto a cutting board or working surface. Coat with some cooking spray or brush with some melted butter.

Lay the second sheet over, and brush with more butter or coat with more cooking spray. Cut the 2 phyllo pastries into 4 equal parts. Stack two of them together to get 2 4-sheet pastry rectangular.

Spread half of the almond mixture evenly on each of the pastry, leaving about 1-inch border. Arrange the strawberry slices over the almond mixture.

Fold the edges to form two open packages. Drizzle with maple syrup or sprinkle sugar over each tart.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the pastries are golden and start to become brown. Serve warm or at room temperature with maple syrup if desired.

This recipe is almost as same as the plum tart recipe. As you saw, instead of plums, I used freshly sliced strawberries, and instead of rolling the edges of the phyllo dough, this time I folded the phyllo. Crispy and fruity. You can use the same way to make all kinds of desserts, just simply slice some fruits, and arrange them neatly and nicely over the ground almond mixture that's spread onto the phyllo dough. It's quick, easy, tasty and very light.

this sounds delicious! But in my opinion I would not ruin it with maple syrup, I'd use just a little sugar. Maple syrup is for pancakes, etc. and nothing else. lol LOL!
