Lemon Curd and Fresh Fruit Phyllo Tarts
These little tarts are really fun for a spring dessert. Phyllo dough shells are brushed with melted DOVE® PROMISES® Milk Chocolate and then filled with, fruit fruit, lemon curd or pudding, and an extra touch of chocolate with a DOVE® PROMISES® Milk Chocolate.
These phyllo tarts are a great recipe that can easily be adapted according to your preferences depending on how you would like to fill it and what fruit you uses as your garnish.
Phyllo can be really fun to use in place of other doughs or crusts for things like tarts, but can be a little challenging to work with if you’ve never used it before.
Here are a few key tips to make your first attempt successful. Once you’ve figured out the technique it really isn’t that difficult.
4 Tips for Working with Phyllo Dough
1. Defrost ahead of time in the refrigerator. This works better than thawing on the counter, and prevents the dough from becoming gummy.
2. Prep the rest of the recipe before you unwrap the phyllo. Phyllo dries out incredibly fast, so having all of the other ingredients prepared allows you to work quickly once the phyllo is exposed to the air.
3. Cover the phyllo with a damp towel. This will help keep the dough from drying out after you unwrap it. Remove the towel when you begin assembling the recipe.
4. Recover the dough with the damp towel in between uses. Typically you will work with a few sheets at a time. To prevent the remaining sheets from drying out, cover them with the damp towel when not in use.
