Huh. In my head this looked different. I was bored and curious what would happen if I shoved a fruit and cream cheese filling into phyllo pastry and didn’t even pretend to arrange it nicely? Would it collapse? Would it leak everywhere? For science.
Made a filling of cream cheese, greek yogurt, sugar, fresh lemon, and egg yolk. Threw on some frozen berries I’ve been trying to get rid of for ever. Gave absolutely no fucks as I “folded” the pastry.
As it turns out, phyllo will stay slightly upright! The centre was wobbly like a jellyfish. I let it sit for 10 min and drizzled icing over it. It didn’t taste horrible, but definitely not great. Way too much filling. Looked like a hot mess haha!
It did turned out more edible than I predicted, but I definitely would not do this again. For something thrown together in 10 minutes on a whim I’m satisfied. I suppose one has to bother with all the little knife cuts and the elegant folds. Eheu.
