Nectarine Parcels

Phew, last post, last minute! Thank you LadyRaven for hosting the Ready Steady Cook! challenge, it definitely was a challenge to finish it all on time (due to my laziness...), but it was a learning experience.


This dessert is quick and dirty, no measuring of ingredients, just add to taste..!

Nectarine Parcels

  • Nectarines, cut into slivers
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Mixed Spice
  • Lemon Zest
  • Phyllo Pastry

  1. Melt the butter and sugar in a pan. Add the nectarines and cook for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the spices and lemon zest, cook for a few minutes more and remove from heat.
  3. Cut phyllo pastry into 10cm wide strips. Place about 5 strips on top of each other.
  4. Place some nectarines on one of the corner areas. Fold the corner over to the opposite side to form a triangle. Keep on folding triangles until you have reached the end of the strip. Brush the edge with butter to seal the triangle.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius until the pastry is golden brown.


  1. A nice dessert to finish off the meal, your other meals looks fantastic. I hope I din't give you a tough choice of ingredients.

  2. I usually make phyllo pastry parcels for Christmas mince pies, this is another recipe to add to that - thanks :)

  3. Thanks Umm Mymoonah, I really liked working with the ingredients! It was nice doing vegetarian as I don't buy that much meat when cooking for myself.

    Thanks Tandy, now that I know how to make the parcels I've been itching to try some other fillings!

  4. Quick & dirty, just the way I like 'em.

  5. This looks amazing! I love fruit desserts, and one so easy is a great find. You're a great photographer as well--the pictures I've seen on your blog are fantastic.
