These fruit baskets make a delicious summer desert and are a lighter alternative to fruit pies and crumbles.
You ca use any fruit combination you like: you can use combined berries, pears and bleackberies and pinch of cinnamon, pears, apples and oranges with some orange zest. You can also play with flavours: you can use vanilla pod, cinnamon, mint, or basil, which goes great with the berries. I encourage you to experiment.
I made this recipe out of a desire to use some fruit left in the fridge. This is a good way to recycle the ingredients. I used a mixture of cherries, appricots, strawberries, blueberries and blackcurrants in combination with mint and basil.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/Fan 180ºC. (6 on gas, medium to high heat).

2
Done

Wash, peel and cut the fruits. I used strawberries cut in half, cherries cut in half, apricots cut in wedges, blueberries and blackcurrants.

3
Done

Put the fruits in a pan together with the sugar and lemon juice. I added some fresh thyme and a couple of mint leaves. Simmer for 3 minutes, then sieve over a jug to save the liquid. Leave to cool.

Done

You can use ramekins or a muffin tray to bake these fruit baskets. Brush the baking trays or ramekins dishes with melted coconut oil. Place a filo sheet on the working surface. Cut squares about 1 cm larger than the diameter of the baking dish or muffin cup. Brush each filo square with coconut oil and stack 3 - 4 squares together and press into the ramekin, oiled side up. Repeat with remaining ramekins.

5
Done

Spoon the fruits into each filo basket.
Bake the baskets for 25–30 minutes until golden and the pastry is crisp.

6
Done

While the baskets are in the oven, pour the juice saved from the fruits into a clean pan. Simmer until reduced by half. You will obtain a sauce to serve alongside the filo fruit baskets.
