Sugared Grape and Phyllo Tart



Welcome to Day #4 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita's Cocina! Each day we will be celebrating the holidays with a different set of Christmas-themed treats, as well as a fabulous Christmas giveaway. We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Tune in each day starting Monday, December 9th and ending Saturday, December 14th.


******************************

Have you ever baked or roasted a grape? Yeah, me neither... until now. And y'all, it's so good! The sweetness really intensifies and the skin softens quite a bit - plus they are really pretty when baked into something! Perfect for the holidays.

And I think we can all agree that phyllo dough is the bombdiggity. I mean, it's thin, flaky, crispy dough. Hello?! 

This 4 ingredient recipe is so easy it's ridiculous. You just brush a layer of phyllo with butter (!), sprinkle with sugar (!), and top with another layer. Repeat 5 times, top with grapes, and bake. 

The result is a thin, crispy, easy to eat sweet treat topped with fruit and therefore healthy. 

Yes?


Sugared Grape & Phyllo Tart
6 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed according to package directions
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
8 teaspoons sugar
1 cup red seedless grapes

Preheat oven to 400.

Lay 1 sheet of phyllo on a baking sheet (keep the other sheets covered). Carefully brush the entire surface lightly with butter. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar evenly over the butter and then top with another sheet of phyllo dough. Brush the new sheet with butter, sprinkle with sugar, top with another phyllo sheet, and repeat. With the last sheet, butter it lightly before arranging the grapes on top. Dot each grape with some butter and then sprinkle the remaining 2 teaspoons sugar over the entire top.

Bake until crispy and golden, 13-15 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting into squares. Serve warm.
