Place in the holes of cup cake mould with the edges and corners extending from the holes. Put about 1 tbsp of crème filling in the middle of each one. Place cup cake mould in oven for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden Take out of oven and add about 1 tbsp of cool syrup over each phyllo cup cake. Garnish with nuts in the middle.

    Oh, I just love working with the pastry sheets - they make such a wonderful crispy, light "holder" for so many things, and your pastry cream filled "flowers" are a perfect example - what a pretty "party" food...festive and beautiful, and the great flavor of that filling - oh, they are making me very, very hungry...must try this one soon. Thank you, Ahmed, for sharing your recipe, your pictures, and your baking passion!!

    That's it Ahmed-can I be your apprentice? This is similar to the Cream Filled Baklava recipe which I really liked but I love how these are individual portions-so festive with the flower shape and the vanilla would give it a slightly differnent taste. Did you use the regular size muffin tin or the minature one?
