This simple and easy recipe puts an end to portion guesswork. These "nesters" are just the right size...try them with different fruit and/or berries. Oh, yeah! You may need to make some extras for the kids, they just can't get enough of them.
2 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
3 Tbsp.milk or cream
1 Tbsp sugar
3 packets of sugar substitute
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup berries(blueberries, raspberries or strawberries)*
* Thaw berries if using frozen.
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Spray both sides of phyllo dough with nonstick cooking spray.
Working quickly, cut each sheet of dough lengthwise into 4 strips,then cut each strip crosswise into 4 pieces.
Spray 8 standard (2 1/2 in) nonstick muffin pans with cooking spray. Press 4 phyllo squares into each cup with corners overlapping; ruffle edges to create nests. Bake
4 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack (You can use the extra rack from the oven)
While the nest are cooling, beat cream cheese, sour cream, milk, sugar, sugar substitute,and vanilla in medium bowl with mixer at medium speed until smooth.
Gently remove nests from pan. Spoon 2 tablespoons of mixture into each nest; top with 2 tablespoons of berries.
