Apricot Cream Cheese Phyllo tart

Submitted by: LADYCANUK

Introduction

These quick and easy tarts hit the spot when you are craving rich, delicious French Pastry - for under 100 cal.

Don't be afraid of frozen phyllo dough. It is remarkably easy to use and always procudes impressive results - even for beginners! For this tart , you could substitute a variety of fruit: strawberries, blueberries, canned peaches or pears. I like the apricots - they look perfectly pretty in a tart - and only 10 cal per half!

Ingredients

    Phyllo Dough (comes frozen) - 4 1/2 sheets
    Canned apricots - 12 halves
    Light Cream Cheese - 12 tbsp
    Sugar Free Apricot Jam - 5 tbsp
    Butter - 2 tbsp (melted)
    Sliced Almonds - 1/4 cup
    Icing Sugar - 1 tbsp

Directions

Mix 3 tbps of the apricot jam with the cream cheese.
Thaw phyllo pastry as per instructions.
Lay out one sheet, brush lightly with melted butter. Try and be gentle - but don't worry if you get a couple of tears.
Repeat twice for a three layer sheet. Cut into eight sqaures.
Repeat with 3 "half" sheets for another four squares.
Fit each square into a greased muffin/tart tin so that it slightly overlaps on itself on the bottom and the corners are sticking out the sides.
Place 1 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture inside the dough. Sprinkle on a few slivered almonds and then top with half an apricot.
Tuck the pastry corners down slightly to partially cover the tart .
Cook in preheated 375 degree oven for approx 12 min (until pastry is golden brown)
Remove. Brush/Glaze with remaining melted apricot jam. Sift icing sugar on top when cooled.


(You can also use an oil spray instead of brushing on the butter. It is less likely to tear and would cut the calories even more.)
