Filo Dough Pastry Cups

Summer can be overwhelming with all the planned activities. If you are planning a summer party of any kind, do yourself a favor and don't make your life more complicated than it already is. Simply invite people over to have some ice-cream. Some might think this would be boring, but look at these filo dough pastry cups you can make, with which you can do so much. They are buttery and crunchy and delicious.  Add ice-cream,  frozen yogurt or gelato, and decorate the pastry cup with chocolate, nuts, honey, mint, peanut butter,  jam, wafer sticks,  fruit, sprinkle with coco powder or anything you can think of. There are so many options! All of a sudden your ice-cream party will be the hit of the day! 


8 oz - fillo dough (9"by 14"sheets) - thawed 

1 stick - butter, melted 

granulated sugar 

oil spray 


Preheat oven to 400 F. On a clean surface place a sheet of filo dough (make sure you keep the rest of the sheets wrapped in the plastic while you work with one sheet. They will dry fast otherwise.)With a rubber brush, butter slightly the filo sheet. With a spoon drizzle lightly the sheet. Cut the sheet in ribbon like sheets and fold into a muffin pan to form the muffin cup, pressing the sides and the bottom. Trust me this would not look pretty but they will look beautiful after you take them out of the hot oven. Repeat with the rest of the filo ribbons. (I use about one sheet per cup but you may use more if needed). 

Bake for 5 minutes. Wait until a little cooler and place somehwere safe as they are very flaky. 

Decorate as you wish before or after you place the ice-cream. Enjoy!
