Creamy Berry Tartlets

Here’s a simple and tasty treat that’s great for parties. Even though there are only three ingredients in this recipe, the crispy delicate phyllo shells give the tartlets a fancy appearance that’s sure to impress your friends!

Makes 30 tartlets

  • 30  small phyllo cups
  • 1 jar (8 – 13 oz.) strawberry or raspberry preserves
  • 8 oz. dairy-free cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Meanwhile place phyllo cups 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.
