Phyllo Nests Ingredients

  • 12 sheets frozen, thawed phyllo pastry
  • Butter flavor vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 pounds peaches, peeled, pitted, sliced
  • 1/4 pound plums, pitted, sliced
  • Fruit Sauce (see recipe below)

Phyllo Nests Directions

  1. Cut phyllo into (24) 8″ squares.
  2. Spray 4 phyllo squares lightly with vegetable spray; layer squares, turning each slightly so that corners are staggered. Carefully fit phyllo into 8-ounce custard cup, shaping edges to form “nest”. Repeat with remaining phyllo squares.
  3. Arrange fruit in bottom of each “nest”. Place custard cups on cookie sheet and bake at 375°F (190°C) until phyllo is golden and fruit tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. Cool on wire racks; carefully remove “nests” from custard cups. Serve warm or room temperature with Fruit Sauce.

  • 2 to 4 tablespoons Equal® Spoonful™

Fruit Sauce Directions

  1. Pureè berries in blender or food processor. If using raspberries, strain and discard seeds. Stir Equal® Spoonful™ into pureè.
  2. Refrigerate until serving time.

Food Exchanges: 2 Starches, 1 Fruit.
