16 sheets filo pastry
30g (1/4 cup) almond meal
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
150g seedless red grapes, halved
150g seedless green grapes, halved
25g (1/4 cup) natural flaked almonds (optional)
Maple syrup, to serve
Natural yoghurt or whipped cream, to serve (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Cover the filo with a damp tea towel.
Lay a sheet of pastry on a work surface. Spray liberally with oil. Fold in half lengthways. Starting at a long side, roll up about three-quarters of the way along then fold into a circle, tucking under the extra pastry and sealing the edges, to make a small tart case. Place on a prepared tray. Repeat with remaining pastry to make 16 cases in total.
Combine the almond meal, sugar, cinnamon and cloves in a bowl. Sprinkle over base of each tart case. Fill with grapes. Scatter with flaked almonds, if using, and spray with oil. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden and crisp.
Drizzle with maple syrup. Serve with yoghurt or cream, if you like.
