Ready In:
8 flowers




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spray eight 1-cup muffin tins with cooking spray.
  • Cut each sheet of filo pastry into 8 squares.
  • Line each of the 8 muffin tin cups with 3 squares of filo pastry, brushing butter in between each layer and on the top, overlapping the sheets at different angles.
  • Combine the almonds, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a small bowl; sprinkle over each of the 8 pastry cups.
  • Top each one with the 3 more squares of pastry, with butter in between each layer and continue to overlap the sheets at different angles.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until golden.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, dissolve the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar in the orange juice; bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer.
  • Halve the peaches and slice thinly (you can peel them or not - your preference).
  • Add the peaches to the syrup and stir gently to coat them; simmer for 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Remove the pastry "flowers" from the muffin tins, and with a slotted spoon, remove the peaches from the syrup and distribute evenly in the "flowers".
  • Drizzle remaining syrup over them; dust with icing sugar.
  • Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if you like!

    Delicious! I particularly liked the cinnamon almond crunch layer in the base -- it's a wonderful complement to the fruit filling. I had a couple of white nectarines to use up, plus a partial jar of sliced peaches, so I mixed them. They do get a bit soggy the next day if you drizzle them with the extra syrup ahead of time, but they're still very tasty. Thanks for posting! Made for The Hot Pink Panthers for ZWT9 Family Picks

    I won a recipe contest with this recipe!! 15 entries and I won first! The only thing I added was a cream cheese bourbon drizzle instead of the powdered sugar!! The taste is amazing and everyone that's had some said they've never tasted anything like it before! Kudos to Cadillacgirl!

<p>Picture taken just for Zaar - mmmm milkshake...</p> <p>I'm a brand new single mommy to my tiny perfect human, so thank you to everyone who takes the time to make and review my recipes - I try to send a zmail to each of you, but baby girl has a different idea.</p> <p>I'm a good ol' prairie girl from Canada with one side of the family being Ukrainian/Slovakian and the other side is German/Russian. In other words, when we cook we take carbs, cover them in more carbs, fry'em and serve it smothered in onions and cream.&nbsp;<br />No pro chefs in my family, just grandmas and aunts and cousins and a mom that had me pinching perogies and stuffing strudel before I could form a complete sentence. <br />The most dreaded / laughed at phrase I say is, So last night, I invented this thing for supper... - I would probably publish more recipes if I actually remembered everything I put in or had an idea of how much I added!!</p>
