Mango and Blackberries make a super combination and , in this dessert, each person gets their own…no way you will want to share this with anyone. Serve these warm with either mango ice cream or really good quality ice cream.
- 1 large mango (pitted, peeled and diced)
- 2 cups blackberries, washed and patted dry
- 7 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. corn starch
- 1 tbsp. lime juice (freshly squeezed)
- 1 x 1 lb. pkg. phyllo, cut into an 8 x 8 inch square
- Butter flavoured vegetable spray
Heat oven to 425 degrees and lime a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine the mango, blackberries, 1 tbsp. sugar, cornstarch and lime juice and toss well to coat the fruit.
Place one sheet of phyllo in front of you, with a corner facing you and spray with the butter spray, sprinkle a 1/2 tsp. sugar over the surface and repeat this with three more sheets of the phyllo, laying them on top of each other.
Place 2 heaping tsp. of fruit 1/3 of the way from the bottom of the phyllo. Fold left and right points over the filling, overlapping by 1 inch. Fold the bottom corner up, enclosing the filling. Loosely roll up to form a cylindical shape about 4 1/2 – 5 inches long.
Repeat this until all the phyllo and fruit are used up- should make 8. Spray the tops and sides of the pastry with the butter spray and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
Bake until a deep golden colour and turn the baking sheet once during the 25 minute baking time. Slide the parchment paper and pies onto a rack to cool slightly.
Serve warm with ice cream, What a treat! Bring on the movies…..Yum!
