Decorating Tips

After cooling, drizzle enough honey on top of the tart for added shine and softness. Garnish with crushed pistachios for a pop of color and texture, and if available, a few candied rose petals or rose leaves can add a beautiful, aromatic finish.

  • Ingredients:
    • For the phyllo base:
      • 5 sheets of phyllo dough, thawed
      • 30 grams of melted butter
    • For the filling:
      • 4 eggs
      • 200 grams of sugar (about 1 cup)
      • 1/4 cup honey
      • 500 grams of cottage cheese with 5% fat
      • 250 grams of creamy cheese with 5% fat
      • 2 units of sour cream 15% fat
      • 80 grams of vanilla pudding mix
      • 70 grams of flour (about 1/2 cup)
  • Instructions:
    1. Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C) with fan (turbo setting). Butter a 22cm baking dish.
    2. Prepare the phyllo base: Brush each sheet of phyllo with melted butter and place them in the baking dish, letting the edges hang over the sides.

    5. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until set and lightly browned.
    6. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
