Ingredients

How to make it

  • The Phyllo Pastry:
  • Allow 4 sheets per pocket…
  • Melt 1/2 lb creamery butter
  • You may leave all the Phyllo sheets together on the working surface and work on each one easily, following directions below:
  • *Lightly brush Phyllo, one sheet at a time, buttering LEFT AND RIGHT sides.
  • Generously coat without applying enough pressure to split the dough sheets.
  • **Fold the buttered sides together.
  • ***Now butter the RIGHT SIDE of the sheet below the first fold.
  • ****Fold this over the left side where the first sheet has been folded
  • *****Now butter the sheet on the RIGHT side below the second fold, and fold this over the left side…
  • ******Butter the RIGHT side of the next sheet below, and fold it over the left.
  • *******This now gives you four sheets, with 8 layers.
  • ><><><><><><><><><><
  • Now take these eight layers, and butter the top.
  • About ¼ of the way in, place roughly ½ cup pumpkin mixture onto the sheet, leaving a good 1 to 1 ½ inches clear on the sides.
  • Roll partway, stop, add more butter to the top rolled portion.
  • Now add another dollop of pumpkin mixture, and continue rolling until the pocket is contained, and the the package is neat.
  • Fold the edges of the pocket inwards, as illustrated... this helps prevent the filling from escaping during baking.
  • As the pockets bake, they will naturally straighten to resemble a Christmas cracker.
  • Place on ungreased baking sheet
  • Brush tops with butter.
  • Bake at moderately low oven for 60 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
  • ===================================
  • The Butter Cream:
  • In mixing bowl, add a pint of whipping cream, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 ½ tbsp Stevia
  • Whip this until it just starts to turn into butter.
  • Place in freezer until time to use, and serve as a sweet-butter sauce slightly over and alongside the pockets.
