Summer dessert alert! And an easy simple one – that is delicious and quick to make. Those are the best ones! Perfect for lazy summer dinners with friends. You can swap out your favorite summer fruit with anything you like. We used blackberries, raspberries and peaches because those are our favorites. I also love being able to use store bought phyllo because it makes this recipe so very easy to throw together. It also makes this a lighter dessert which is perfect for the summer heat. Hope you guys enjoy!

- Place a clean, 9” cake pan (that’s lightly greased on the outside) in the center of the phyllo sheets and scrunch the exposed ends towards the center, against the cake pan.
- Carefully lift can pan out from the center, so there is an empty phyllo shell with a scrunched border.

- Transfer baked crust to a platter and spread honey whipped ricotta evenly over the crust, avoiding covering the border.
