Ingredients

  • 3 large sheets filo pastry (97% fat-free)
  • canola oil spray
  • 130 g pouring custard (99% fat-free)
  • 55 g vanilla yoghurt (thick and creamy, 99% fat-free)
  • 40 g cream, whipped (until stiff)
  • 150 g tinned Goulburn Valley apricots, chopped into medium-sized chunks
  • 150 g tinned Goulburn Valley peaches, chopped into medium-sized chunks
  • 4 large mint leaves, finely sliced
  • mint leaves, extra, for serving

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced.
  2. Cut each sheet of fi lo pastry into 6 equal squares (use 3 pastry squares per tart).
  3. Lightly spray 1 square with a little canola oil and place another square on top at an angle. Lightly spray the second square and then place the third square on top at a different angle, to form a star-like shape.
  4. Lightly spray 6 muffin tray holes with canola oil and gently press each fi lo star into a hole. Firmly press around the bottom and then the edges. Then place a scrunched up ball of foil into the filo to keep it from flopping during cooking.
  5. Cook the pastry cases for 8–12 minutes or until lightly golden. Keep in the muffin pan and cool on a wire rack.
  6. While the pastry cases are cooling, mix together the custard, yoghurt and whipped cream. Add the apricot, peaches and mint and stir until combined.
  7. To assemble, carefully remove the filo from the muffin holes (they will be brittle). Spoon the yoghurt mix into the centre of each filo case.
  8. Sprinkle extra mint leaves over the top of each tart, if desired, and serve immediately.

RECIPE NOTES

Tip: Be gentle when handling the filo pastry cups as they are fragile. They are best served immediately; filling will be soft and gooey.

Diabetic Friendly: Serve with a pineapple slice or passionfruit pulp on top to be diabetic friendly.
