butter-flavored cooking spray
raw sugar, such as turbinado, divided
nonfat vanilla yogurt, warmed to room temperature
8 ounces neufchatel cheese or 8 ounces
low-fat cream cheese
1 1/2 cups pitted cherries (such as raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and sliced strawberries) or 1 1/2 cups
( such as raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and sliced strawberries)
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or 1 tablespoon rum (optional) or 1 tablespoon
Preheat oven to 400°F
Place a sheet of phyllo on a flat surface such as a cutting board; spray lightly with spray and sprinkle with 1 tbsp sugar.
Cover with another sheet of phyllo. Repeat three times, finishing with spray and sugar.
Using a pizza cutter or a very sharp knife, cut the phyllo into 3-inch squares.
Place each square in a cup on a muffin tin, pressing in gently and fanning phyllo layers so corners don't overlap.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until golden.
Whip yogurt in a small bowl.
Fold in Neufchâtel and vanilla (and liquor, if desired).
Cover and refrigerate 10 minutes.
After cups have cooled, remove them from muffin tin.
Add 1 tbsp yogurt mixture to each cup.
Top with fruit and serve.
