    CoolMonday's Note:

    I needed an extra dessert for an expected dinner guest who is diabetic. After looking at recipes for a couple of hours, I found this one and it sounded yummy. My dinner will be next month but thought I would try it today to make sure it was good. It was very yummy and I will definitely serve it at my dinner. It's from Diabetic exchanges: 2 carbs (1 bread/starch, 1 fruit) 2 fat

      I made this for my boyfriend who is a type 1 diabetic. I only used a sugar substitute so he could enjoy more of the dessert. He LOVED it and I was so happy at how easy it was to make. I had never worked with phillo dough and was a bit worried, but it was really fun. I have made this with other fruits and this has always been a huge hit with my friends. Definately one recipe to try!
