80(ish)--- Just Peachy Tartlets

Remember how I hate to waste food? Well- a few posts back I made Pecan Pie Tartlets and I had leftover phyllo dough. I'm also not a fan of re-freezing food. So.... I took some frozen peaches from my freezer and voila!

You can use any fruit that you have in your freezer for these- or a combination!
Phyllo dough is a great substitute for a pie or pastry crust. One sheet of dough contains only 57 calories and 1 g of fat! You CAN make it from scratch, and one day I will and I promise I will post it.

Just Peachy Tartlets
Serves 12

6 sheets phyllo dough
Cooking Spray
2 cups frozen peach slices (or fruit of your choice)
1 Tbsp white sugar
1 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Whipped cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a cutting board and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Repeat with two additional layers. Using a knife, cut dough into six even 2 1/2 - 3" squares. Place one square into one cup of a muffin tin prepared with cooking spray. Repeat for each cup. Repeat process for additional three layers of phyllo dough and six additional muffin cups.

Blend peaches, sugars, and cinnamon in a food processor until it has an applesauce-like consistency.

Place ~2 Tbsp peach mixture into each cup. Bake for ~20-25 minutes or until phyllo edges brown slightly.

Serve with 1 Tbsp whipped cream if desired.
