Here’s a super simple and tasty treat that’s great for parties. Phyllo shells are often sold frozen so I keep a few packages on hand in my freezer in case I need to make a quick snack for an event or pot luck. Even though there are only three ingredients in this recipe, the crispy, delicate shells give the tartlets a fancy appearance that’s sure to impress your friends!
Creamy Berry Tartlets
2 pkgs. small phyllo cups, like Athens Mini Fillo Shells
1 jar (8 – 13 oz.) seedless raspberry jam
8 oz. pkg. dairy-free cream cheese, like Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
Preheat oven to 350° F. Place shells on a baking pan and spoon 1 ½ tsp. of jam into each shell. Top each with approx. ½ tsp. of dairy-free cream cheese. Bake tartlets until cream cheese has melted and shells are lightly browned, 8 – 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving.
