No matter what you call it, Fillo, Filo or Phyllo Dough, I have yet to discover a homemade gluten-free recipe that does not take me a century to make and is rice flour free. Seriously…I’ve wasted more time and materials trying to find the right delicate dough to wrap around my seasonal fruit.
I picked these luscious fresh plums, blueberries and blackberries and wanted to seal them all in a light crust, baking them with just a tad of birch tree sugar and topping with homemade Coconut Whipped Cream. Considering my unsuccessful attempts with homemade Phyllo Dough, I crossed the line and bought this gluten free Phyllo Dough from our local German grocery store, Edeka and went at it! The result was wonderful! Just what I was looking for, light, flakey with a hint of sweet and the fruit just popped out, literally, and with so much flavor. Try using any seasonal fruit and create your own amazing Fruit Wheel.
