Caramel Tart topped with Almonds, Coconut, and Marshmallows on a black serving board

Do any of you have anxiety about using phyllo dough? Please tell me I’m not the only one! I’ve eaten plenty of flaky phyllo in baklava, spanakopita, and other delicious appetizers and desserts; but until just recently, I had never created anything with this fantastically thin dough with my very own hands.

So when Athens Foods asked me to create something elegant, perfect for holiday entertaining…using their phyllo dough…yes, I admit, I was a teensy bit apprehensive. But kitchen challenges have always proven worthy of my time. They continue to stretch me, and open up my world a little more with each new adventure. Thanks to this gorgeous Caramel Tart with Almonds, Coconut, and Marshmallows, I’ll forever think of phyllo in a brand new way.

Really…what was I so afraid of?!
