Mini Cranberry Phyllo Tarts

Makes: 15 servings Yield: 15 tarts
Bake 350°F 8 mins
Mini Cranberry Phyllo Tarts
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4  sheets  frozen phyllo dough (14x9-inch rectangles)*
  • 3/4  cup  fresh cranberries
  • 1/2  cup  water
  • 1  tablespoon  sugar
  • 1/3  cup  canned whole cranberry sauce
  • 1/3  cup  lemon fat-free yogurt
  • 3  tablespoons  frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed
  •  Fresh mint leaves (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Coat fifteen 1-3/4-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. Unfold phyllo dough. Remove one sheet of the phyllo dough; lightly coat phyllo sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Working quickly, top with the remaining phyllo sheets, coating each sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Cut phyllo stack lengthwise into three 3-inch-wide strips. Cut each strip crosswise into five rectangles. Press each rectangle into a prepared cup, pleating as needed to fit. Bake about 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in muffin cups for 5 minutes. Carefully remove phyllo cups from muffin cups; cool on a wire rack.

3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cranberries, the water, and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Cool for 15 minutes; drain off liquid. Place in a small bowl; cover and chill for 4 hours.

4. In a small bowl, stir cranberry sauce to break up the sauce. In another small bowl, fold together yogurt and whipped dessert topping. Just before serving, place 1 teaspoon of the cranberry sauce in each phyllo cup. Spoon in yogurt mixture and top each with about three of the cooked cranberries. If desired, garnish with fresh mint leaves. Makes 15 tarts.
