Apple Cheese Phyllo Tart

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by RainbowBubbles

Yum! I love ricotta and jam, and filo pastry's so light and crispy, this recipe is great! I sprayed the filo with cooking spray instead of butter and it went really crispy but not soggy (which was what I'd been worried about with the jam). I also used Splenda instead of sugar to lighten it up and used sugar-free jam, but it still tasted amazing. It's my new favourite dessert, I might try making it in muffin tins next time for indiviual servings. Thanks for a great pie idea!
