I recently hosted a small gathering with a few women. I thought the women would enjoy finger foods and since we all have a sweet tooth these were perfect, hit the spot but not overly sweet.

Yum! These cute little fruit tarts are delicious. The smooth and creamy filling is a nice contrast to the crunchy phyllo shells. Bits of kiwi, orange, and strawberries on top make these bite-size desserts adorable. The perfect addition to any party dessert tray.

How To Make phyllo fruit tarts

  • Cream cheese, lemon juice, and condensed milk beat until creamy and airy.
    Add to the room temp cream cheese, the juice of 1 whole lemon and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. Beat until no lumps and creamy and airy.
  • Baked fillo cups with cream mixture.
    Baked the phyllo shells, approximately 4-5 mins. Allow to cool then fill with the mixture above.
  • Fruit placed on top of the Phyllo Fruit Tarts.
    Top all the shells with any fruit mixture you choose. I used what fruit I had on hand but fruit in season would be great as well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
