Ice-cream dessert in crispy phillo shell

Ice-cream Dessert


Ingredients for 4 ice-cream desserts:

4 sheets of phillo pastry,
4 cups of ice-cream,
1 ripe plantain,
4 strawberries,
other fruits if desired,
caramel and strawberry syrups for decoration,
cinnamon powder,
little bit of oil, as needed.


1. Take two ceramic bowls of different sizes and grease them lightly with the oil.

2. Fold each phillo sheet to four and place it in-between the two bowls.

However, I have tried making the shells only in a convection oven. I am not sure if it will work the same way in a regular oven.

I used temperature of 350 F for 8-10 minutes in convection oven.

3. Let the shells cool down, then stuff them with the ice-cream.

4. Garnish with fruits and syrups and serve.

I served the ice-cream dessert with caramelized plantain slices and strawberry, sprinkled with cinnamon powder.
