For the phyllo dough

  • Cut into three strips from the larger side, and then cut the strips in half. In that way, you will have 6 square sheets.
  • Butter a 6-cup muffin pan and share the phyllo pieces. At the center, place a creased parchment paper piece so that they keep their shape while baking.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.

  • In a bowl add the couverture cut into small pieces, the butter, and transfer over a pot with simmering water, creating a bain-marie. Mix with a spatula until it melts.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, orange zest, and beat with the whisk attachment at medium speed for 3-4 minutes until the mixture is fluffy.
  • Add the couverture mixture and beat for 1 minute until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Transfer into a pastry bag and fill the cups with the baked phyllo.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.

For the whipped cream

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the heavy cream, the icing sugar, and beat with the whisk attachment at medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes until the cream thickens and becomes a whipped cream.
  • Remove from the bowl and transfer into a pastry bag.

To serve

  • Remove the souffle from the oven, decorate with the whipped cream, finely chopped pistachios, melted chocolate couverture, and serve.
