Phyllo Cups

Makes: 12 servings

Phyllo Cups
Ingredients
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8  sheets frozen phyllo dough (14x9-inch), thawed
  • 4  teaspoons  sugar
  • 1  Honey Filling with Berries, Espresso Coconut-Macadamia Filling, or Lemon Cheesecake Filling
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly coat twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray. Set aside.

Top with another sheet of phyllo. Lightly coat with cooking spray and sprinkle with sugar. Repeat layering with two more sheets of phyllo, the cooking spray, and sugar (using 4 sheets for one stack). Repeat with remaining sheets of phyllo, cooking spray, and sugar for a second stack.

2. Cut each stack in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into thirds. There should be a total of 12 rectangles. Press 1 rectangle into each prepared muffin cup, pleating phyllo as necessary to form a cup. Bake in preheated oven about 8 minutes or until golden. Cool for 5 minutes in pan. Remove from pan; cool completely. Fill with desired filling. (Cups may be filled up to 1 hour before serving.) Makes 12 cups.
