For last weeks Potluck, I was in charge of making the dessert.Potlucks are a lot of fun, especially since, you get to meet everyone and also taste variety of good food. Needless to say, it adds 'happy pounds' on you!!!
So the menu for this weeks potluck was...2 types of pastas, a soup, a salad and then a dessert.Everything tasted good and we had a satisfying meal at 'V''s new house.
For Fruit Custard

Custard powder of your favorite brand and flavor
Fruits cut into bite size pieces: Apples,peeled oranges,Pineapple, grapes, bananas
Handful of chocolate chips
Vanilla essence
Sprinkles for decoration

1) Make the custard according to directions on the custard powder can.Let it cool
2) Add the Vanilla essence,chopped fruits,chocolate chips and chill in refrigerator.

Phyllo/Filo Dough Cups:
6 Phyllo sheets
2tbsp melted butter
muffin pans
1) Thaw the filo dough as per packet directions
2) Place 1 rectangular sheet of filo on cutting board. Apply melted butter gently with a brush.Apply through the whole sheet. Be gentle, otherwise the sheets will tear.

3) Place next sheet on top of this buttered sheet.Apply butter.Repeat the same and stack all sheets on top of one another.Cut into 6 squares and place them in muffin pans.
 4) Bake at 350F for 8-10 mins till golden brown.Check packet for exact baking time for that brand of filo dough.
