These bite-sized Phyllo Cups filled with creamy ricotta cheese and fresh seasonal fruit are the perfect dessert for entertaining. Use store-bought phyllo shells or make them yourself using my easy phyllo cups recipe.
These Fresh Fruits and Ricotta Phyllo Cups are one of the easiest bite-sized desserts you'll ever make. 1-2-3 it's done! Well, almost.
If you decide to make this phyllo cups recipe using store-bought pastry, it'll take you...15 minutes maybe? And it means you're slow. No offence, friend, I like you anyway <3
Prepared phyllo cups are not available in Australia (or at least I couldn't find any at the main supermarkets) so I always make my own cups using phyllo dough, a little butter or olive oil spray and a muffin tin. It's a breeze if using my easy phyllo cups recipe!
I love the crisp, flaky texture of phyllo dough but I don't like the waste that usually comes with it. Often, I thaw a box, use about half of the pastry and then forget about them, only to come back to them a week later, and find them all dry and not usable. Not cool.
So this time, I made another Phyllo Cups recipe: these Apple Phyllo Cups . Make sure to try both phyllo cup recipes and serve them as a bite-sized dessert or brunch treats the next time you are entertaining a crowd.

Fresh Fruits and Ricotta Phyllo Cups
These bite-sized Phyllo Cups filled with creamy ricotta cheese and fresh seasonal fruit are the perfect dessert for entertaining. Use store-bought phyllo cups or make them yourself using my easy phyllo cups recipe.
- 1 cup fat-free ricotta one 250 g / 9 oz jar
- 1 tbsp honey or more to taste depending on the fruits you are using
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 12 phyllo/filo cups – store-bought or homemade, see recipe below
- Seasonal fresh fruits like berries in summer or grapes and kiwi in winter cut into small chunks
If you are making homemade phyllo cups, start with that. Here's the recipe.
In a bowl, mix ricotta with honey and vanilla extract.
Spoon into phyllo cups and top with fresh fruits. Serve immediately.
The pastry will get soggy if you make these cups ahead. You can prepare the ricotta mixture ahead and spoon it at the last minute.
