Urghhh.. decisions.. decisions.. now for this super simple non fussy .. sort of healthy dessert recipe... do it to impress ur guests.. do it when ur running out of time .. cos this dessert is the simplest that i hv ever prepared...

Ingredients
80g (3oz) butter, melted and cooled, plus extra for greasing
270g (10oz) shop-bought filo pastry
4 tbsp apricot jam
500g (1lb 2oz) low-or no fat Greek yoghurt
2 tbsp honey
Seeds of 1 vanilla pod or 2 drops of vanilla extract
Small bunch of black seedless grapes, halved
Bunch of redcurrants
1 dragon fruit, peeled and cubed
2 large figs, quartered
12-hole muffin tin or cupcake tin

Method
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F), Gas Mark 4 with the middle shelf ready. Grease the muffin or cupcake tin well.

- Cut the filo pastry into squares that are big enough to fit into the muffin holes and hang over the sides a little. Brush each piece of filo with lots of melted butter to stop them from burning in the oven, then push a filo square into a hole and add another filo square, you will need to layer up 3–4 pieces. Repeat until you have 8 holes filled
(You can go to youtube on how to do pastry basket except i used alot more melted butter hehehe)

- Place the filo cases into the oven for 5 minutes or so, giving them time to crisp up. Once they look golden brown and crispy remove them from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes or so. Remove them from the muffin tray and place them on serving dishes. I always tend to break at least one when I take them out!

- Put the jam in a small pan and heat gently until warm.

- Mix the Greek yoghurt, honey and vanilla together in a bowl then place a good dollop into each pastry case. Now divide the fruit among the tartlets, piling it up high. Brush with the warm apricot jam to make a shiny glaze and serve.
(I used thick and creamy passionfruits yogurt in some of my skinny tart too!)

You can also decorate with a sprig of fresh mint, or get creative with some raspberry jam thinned and well mixed with some water and drizzle it on the plate for a touch of old-school food glamour.

Kak Rima,
2 main reasons why I wanna be your neighbour.

1) So that I can learn food photograhpy from you. You cangkung, I cangkung. You tongggeng, I tonggeng.

2) So that I can eat (even if you won't let me) and taste all your delish bakings!

Having announced that, psst.. is that your new baby gadget? 0_*
