As I write this post for Caramelized Apple Phyllo Cups, the rain is pouring like crazy here in Sydney. I could almost pretend I’m back in Paris with this depressing weather.

In Australia, summer has officially ended and we’re now entering fall and soon, winter. I heard Australian winters are harsh, with an average temperature of 60-70F. Not sure I can make it lol.

My sister is coming back from her road trip today and the least we can say is that she really has no luck. It’s been all sunny and warm these past few days and precisely when she’ll be in Sydney, it’s going to be rainy and gloomy.

I won’t be able to tease her about the amazing Australian weather anymore, that’s a pity.

Anyway, I know you’re not here to talk about the weather. I was only trying to justify the fact that I’m sharing a recipe for Apple Phyllo Cups – in April. Which, for you, could sound strange since Spring has just begun and apples totally evoke Fall.

In order to distract you a bit and draw you in, I decided to use a tablecloth that totally screams spring. See these colors? The perfect diversion. Plus I have to mention that these Caramelized Apple phyllo cups are super cute, and I’m sure you agree with me.

Caramelized Apple Phyllo Cups
These Caramelized Apple Phyllo Cups were inspired by the French Tarte Tatin, which is one of my favorite pastries. It’s totally going to be one of the first things I’ll eat when I visit my friends and family back in Paris. I have such a busy ‘to eat’ program!

It’s funny how you instantly start craving certain foods when you no longer have access to it, even if it wasn’t something you ate regularly.

Needless to mention, none of the food I’m thinking about is healthy. Talk about cheese, macarons, foie gras, chocolate viennoise, saucisson… and the list could go on and on. I might have to pay a visit to my former gym, too.

Gosh, I love food. And these Caramelized Apple Phyllo Cups!
