This thin and flaky dessert is a great way to show off ripe, juicy cherries.


  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 6 sheets phyllo dough, trimmed to 11 x 16 inches

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 12 ounces (3 cups) sweet cherries, pitted


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Lay 1 phyllo sheet on a baking tray (keep remaining pieces covered with a damp kitchen towel) and lightly brush entire surface with oil. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets. Arrange cherries on top. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.

  2. Bake until crisp and golden brown, 15 to 17 minutes. Cut into squares.
