Christmas Baskets


An easy Christmas recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ Light and delicious, to be proposed at the end of the meal, using fresh and dried fruit and chocolate, of course! Crispy outside, soft inside, as I like it ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to give you my best wishes, my most sincere best wishes to you, dear Chefs, and to all those who read me, by giving, even though virtually, a basket to all of you …:-)

phyllo dough
3 medium apples
1 cup of raisin
1 cup almond flakes
1 tablespoon of rice syrup or malt
1 teaspoon dark chocolate cream
cinnamon, to taste

Unroll the phyllo dough, which I bought frozen at the organic shop. With a roll you should get approx a dozen of baskets, I had a leftover of it and I prepared four, so adjust the quantity of the filling. Once unwrapped, overlay three sheets, previously brushed with mixed seeds oil, one by one. Cut out some rectangles, big enough for single portion moulds. I chose the rectangular shape as I liked the idea of โ€‹โ€‹having baskets with pointed edges! But you can make them round. Line the molds with baking paper and turn the oven on to 180ยฐC. Prepare the filling, chop the peeled apples into chunks and cook them for a few minutes, without anything else, in a saucepan. They should be soft, not reduced to a pulp. Once the apples are done, add the other ingredients; I used what I had in the pantry, but you can pick any other dried fruit to taste. Set the filling aside. Bake the empty baskets for about 7-8 minutes in the oven, but check the time, they should get golden. Fill the basket half hour before serving, to avoid them becoming too wet because of the filling. Do not use silicone molds, as it would be difficult to remove the baskets, being the phyllo dough quite crisp. I hope I gave you a suggestion to propose a fruit basket! ๐Ÿ™‚ Best wishes to all of you, dear, from my heart, and see you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
