A plate of pastries with raspberries and powdered sugar.

Christmas Red Fruit Filo Baskets


  • 3 sheets filo pastry

  • 15 ml /1 tablespoon sunflower oil

  • 175 gr / 1 ½ cups redcurrants

  • 250 ml / 1 cup strained plain yogurt

  • 5 ml / 1 teaspoon icing sugar

  • 115 gr / 1 cup whole strawberries and raspberries, to decorate.


      1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius / 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a sharp kitchen knife, cut the sheets of filo pastry into 18 squares with sides about 10 cm / 4 in long.

      1. Brush each filo square thinly with oil, then arrange the squares to overlap in six small tartlet or muffin pans, layering them in threes. Bake for 6-8 minutes, until crisp and golden. Remove the baskets from the tartlet / muffin pans, using a palette knife, and allow them to cool.

      1. Reserve a few sprigs of redcurrants to add to the decoration and string the rest through the tines of a fork. Stir the currants into the yogurt.

      1. Spoon the yogurt into the filo baskets. Decorate the baskets with the red fruits and sprinkle them lightly with icing sugar.

Prep time: 10 – 15 min

Total time: 25 – 30 min


  • This elegant dessert looks very festive.

  • It is also low in fat and needs only a fine brushing of oil before use: a light oil such as sunflower is the best choice for this recipe.

Tip: You can substitute the yogurt and use vanilla or chocolate custard for the filling of the baskets or even vanilla or chocolate pudding would taste amazing!

Enjoy! 🙂
