Mini Sweet Potato Tarts

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    8 oz phyllo dough, thawed
    2 c sweet potato, steamed or roasted, flesh only
    1/2 c dark brown sugar
    1/2 t salt
    1/2 t pumpkin pie spice mix, plus additional 1/2 t for dusting
    1/4 c low-fat evaporated milk
    1 t vanilla
    1/2 c egg substitute or 2 egg whites
    1/2 c fat free whipped topping

Tips

To boost the fiber, you can look for whole-wheat phyllo dough, which is available in the healthy food freezer section of many grocery stores.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Remove phyllo dough from packaging. Slice into 1 inch strips, then cut each strip into 2 inch segments. Using 3 layers at a time, fill the cups, spraying cooking spray between each layer. Repeat process three times. Remove skin from sweet potatoes and allow to cool to room temperature. Place sweet potatoes, sugar, spice mix, milk, and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add eggs and blend just to incorporate. Fill cups to the top of the muffin pan. Bake 18-20 minutes, until custard is set and pastry starts to brown. Once cooled, top with 1 teaspoon of fat-free whipped topping and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice mix.
Makes 12 servings (two tarts per serving).

    I made these in 12 regular muffin tins. I thought that would mean you could only have one, but I used 1/4 c splenda brown sugar, added cinnamon and nutmeg and a little less of the phyllo and mine came out to be 107.8 calories! It could stand less and still be sweet! Wonderful!! - 7/30/10

    Interesting picture... certainly does NOT show phyllo dough, although now it does show mini's (didn't back on 11/10/12 when it first came out).. it's a mini pie with a crust! How difficult is it to put a picture that actually represents the item that was made? - 11/10/12

    I make a sweet Potato Caserole. Same as pie but without the crust. Saves lots of calories. I like the egg beaters and will use that this time. Is there a brown sugar substitue that could be used? - 11/10/09

    This sounds good. I have seen frozen phyllo cups at the store that would make it much easier to do and they would make a great appetizer. - 4/10/11

    Although making this in casserole form might be lower in calories, these work better for me because the nutrition information is already figured out for each portion. I have a tendency to serve bigger portions when eating casserole style. This fits right in with my meal planning. Thank You! - 10/1/10

    Sweet Potatoes were .25/lb at Walmart yesterday! I put one in the toaster oven for my breakfast on this chilly morning. Think I will do the same as the squash & batch cook to freeze.
    They are sweet enough for me, but Splenda's brown sugar could be a substitute. - 11/18/09

    I will try these, I often make "Pumpkin Pie" in my glass pyrex baking dish without the crust and it's wonderful! Same recipe as regular pumpkin pie with egg beaters and bake it just a few minutes less. Very good alternative for the holidays. - 10/27/10
