  • Phyllo layers
  • 2 sheets frozen phyllo pastry, thawed and cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons clarified butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar, brown sugar or white sugar
  • About 3 tablespoons/20 g finely chopped hazelnuts
    • Blackberry filling
    • 1 cup/250 ml heavy cream
    • Maple syrup, to sweeten
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • About 1 pound/450 g blackberries


    To prepare the phyllo layers: Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lay a sheet of phyllo pastry on a work surface. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle over about a teaspoon of sugar and some hazelnuts. Make 3 more layers the same way. Using a large knife or pizza cutter, slice the sheet into 8 rectangles. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until golden and crisp, about 7 minutes.

    To prepare the blackberry filling: Whip the cream with enough syrup to sweeten, and the vanilla extract. Assemble the dessert just before serving: Lay a phyllo layer on each of 4 plates. Top each with 1/4 of the cream mixture. Arrange berries standing upright on top. Top each dessert with another round of phyllo. Serve.
