tartlets

Ingredients

  • 30 item(s) mini phyllo shell(s)
  • 1/3 cup(s) fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 5 1/3 Tbsp soft-type goat cheese, softened (1/3 cup)
  • 1 item(s) egg white(s)
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, coarsely grated (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup(s) jam, fig variety
  • 1/8 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 cup(s) mint leaves, fresh, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange phyllo shells on a cookie sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, goat cheese, egg white, honey and flour until thick and creamy, about 5 to 6 minutes; spoon 1 teaspoon of filling in each shell. Bake until set, about 15 minutes; remove from oven and let cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine apple, jam and allspice; set over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until jam melts and mixture thickens slightly (juice from apples will evaporate); remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Just before serving, spoon 1 teaspoon apple compote onto each tart; garnish with mint. Yields 1 tartlet per serving
