How do I love thee, let me count the ways…

Never mind – just feed me some of this Honey Almond Fillo Tart and I will love you even more, K?

I’m talking flaky Fillo dough (also known as Phyllo dough) layered with honey butter & almonds, and stacked with delicious, homemade custard and fresh raspberries….

You might recall I made another dish using Fillo dough recently. My “Savory Chicken & Pear Pastilla” (which actually took first place in the “Get Your Chef On – Pears” challenge!  Woot!).  So I had the leftover Fillo dough and I wanted to make something sweet and yummy this time.

Using Fillo dough scares people away sometimes (well, not in a zombie kind of way or anything) but I don’t know why.  Yes it’s fragile, but it’s also very forgiving, especially when layered.

There are a few steps involved but if you can read the recipe, you can make this and it is well worth it.  Promise!

I made the custard first because it needs to chill – you can even do this step the day before if needed.

Then I toasted some almonds and made some honey butter: Honey Almond Fillo Tart with Raspberries & Custard at ALittleClaireification.com #food #tart #recipe #phyllo

On a lightly greased baking pan, I carefully laid out the fillo layers, brushing each with honey butter and layering some crumbled almonds in between every two layers.

I cut the honey almond Fillo into squares:

And then baked until golden brown, about 7-8 minutes:

Once cooled, the squares can be gently placed into an airtight container and stored for several days if needed. When I was ready to to arrange the dessert, I whipped up a little sweet whipping cream and folded it into the chilled custard. I placed one Fillo square on my serving plate and placed a few spoonfuls of the custard onto the square, spread out the custard and arranged some raspberries onto the custard.

I repeated the layers again and topped with a third Fillo square.  You can see how light and flaky this dessert is! Honey Almond Fillo Tart with Raspberries & Custard at ALittleClaireification.com #food #tart #recipe #phyllo

 I garnished with a dollop of custard, a raspberry and a few almonds on top and then dusted with a little confectioner’s sugar.

Does that not look heavenly?  The Husband is my “professional taste tester” and he gobbled this one right up.  This dessert is a sure way to say “I love you” to someone special.  Enjoy!
