Return toasted and cooled cups to the tray they came in. It's a steady base to use when filling. For ease, work with two spoons: one to scoop, and the other to scrape the mixture neatly into the cups. You can make the cups up to a day ahead.
1 (1.9-ounce) package frozen mini phyllo cups, thawed
1 tablespoon grated blood orange rind, divided
1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
1/4 cup fresh blood orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 ounces premium white chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Place phyllo cups on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely.
Sprinkle 2 teaspoons rind evenly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes or until rind is dry, stirring and rotating pan after 7 minutes. Cool completely on pan.
Combine remaining 1 teaspoon rind, 1/4 cup sugar, juices, cornstarch, and yolks in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat; stir with a whisk until smooth. Cook 6 to 8 minutes or until thick and bubbly. Whisk in butter. Place pan in a large ice water-filled bowl; cool, stirring mixture occasionally.
Place white chocolate and 1 tablespoon whipping cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 20 seconds or until chocolate melts; stir until smooth. Let stand 5 minutes or until slightly cooled. Combine remaining 3 tablespoons cream and 2 teaspoons sugar in a small bowl. Beat with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture.
Spoon about 2 teaspoons curd into each phyllo cup; top each with about 2 teaspoons cream. Sprinkle with dried rind.

Oh so good. And oh so simple. I didn't have to cook my orange rind anywhere near the time listed. I burned my first batch. For the second batch, as soon as I started to smell the orangey fragrance, I pull it out. It was perfect! I also pushed the completed blood orange curd through a fine sieve to remove any fruit pulp or small lumps. Not necessary but I thought it looked better and was much creamier this way. They were a hit! Will make them again for Easter brunch.
