Elaine made this amazing treat to bring along to our Cancer Council fundraiser morning tea. It is a 'melt in your mouth' delight.
It is a filo parcel filled with a light, sweet custard.
It is called Bougatsa which is a Greek name for a pastry with custard.
They can be made in a variety of ways but these little parcels are just the right size. Easy to eat.
See? There are my teeth marks to prove it.

A few of Elaine's tips...
* Use bought filo pastry, you still have to butter the individual sheets but don't bother starting from scratch!
* Work quickly when you are up to the filo stage.
*Make the custard the night before and do the filo and baking in the morning.
*Don't worry about the figs as a side. That was Georges idea.
* Keep away from Diana (well, Elaine didn't actually say that, I did. I can't resist)
