These fancy looking tarts are actually a snap to make with store-bought phyllo shells. They come mini in size – perfect for portion-control.


Mini phyllo shells

30 item(s)

Fat-free cream cheese

cup(s), softened

Soft-type goat cheese

5 tbsp(s), softened (1/3 cup)

Egg whites

1 serving(s)


2 tbsp(s)

All-purpose flour

1 tbsp(s)

Granny Smith apple

2 medium, peeled, coarsely grated (about 3/4 cup)


½ cup(s), fig variety

Ground allspice

¼ cup(s)

Peppermint leaves

1 tbsp(s), fresh, for garnish


  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.
  4. Yields 1 tartlet per serving.


The tartlets and compote can both be made one day ahead. Just bring to room temperature before serving.
