Phyllo Fruit Tart


Fruity, creamy, flaky, crispy. That’s right, we are talking about the ever so delicious fruit tart made with Phyllo dough. Phyllo (also spelled filo), which means “leaf” in Greek, is tissue-thin sheets of dough that have very little fat. Many popular Greek dishes, such as baklava and spanakopita, are made with phyllo dough. If you love tarts but want to have more of a pastry twist, this recipe is perfect for you! It is super light and delicious!

The recipe comes from Pam Monfore on “Journey” from the Facebook group: “Cooking on a Boat”. Pam says: “I got the recipe from Skinnytaste who got it from Point-less Meals who I think got it from Taste of Home.y. So, we can see how popular this recipe is. Give it a try!

1 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp canola oil
8 sheets phyllo dough, 14″ x 9″
8 oz cream cheese
3 Tbsp powdered sugar
1 cup whipped topping
1 can, 11 oz mandarin oranges, drained
4 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced
1-1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 oz white baking chocolate, melted

In a small bowl, combine butter and oil. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a baking sheet. (I used a 9” x 13” pan) Brush with butter mixture. Repeat with remaining sheets. Bake at 400 for 5-7 minutes or until browned.
Cool completely.
Beat cream cheese until smooth.
Add powdered sugar. Beat well.
Fold in Cool Whip. Spread over cooled phyllo. Top with fruit.
Melt chocolate in microwave and drizzle over fruit.
