For the Clementine Curd:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated clementine zest
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed clementine juice about 2-3 clementines
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice about 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces

For the Whipped Cream:

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Remaining Ingredients:

  • 1 package Athens Mini Fillo Shells 15 shells, thawed
  • 15 small clementine twists Peeled clementine skin, cut into thin strips and curled, for garnish


  • Make the curd: Combine the egg yolks, clementine zest, clementine juice, lemon juice, and granulated sugar in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Whisk in the butter. Remove the saucepan from heat and transfer the curd to a small bowl. Let cool completely. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Make the whipped cream: Combine the heavy cream, confectioners sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and beat on medium high until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes.
  • Put the thawed phyllo cups on a large plate. Spoon 1 tablespoon of curd into each of the cups followed by a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish each with a clementine twist.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator, covered, for up to one week.
