All-American Raisin Apple Tartlets

Enjoy apples and cheese in flaky phyllo layers.
  • Prep Time : 30 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 50 min


  • Serving Size: 1 tart


  • 2 tablespoons heart-healthy buttery spread
  • 4 medium green apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup California raisins
  • 18 sheets phyllo dough
  • Butter-flavor cooking spray
  • 9 tablespoons shredded low-fat sharp Cheddar


Preheat oven to 375°F; spray 12 muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Melt buttery spread in large skillet over medium heat. Add apples and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon; cook for 1 minute more. Stir in raisins and set aside.

Meanwhile, remove phyllo from package and cover with damp towel. Separate and arrange a single sheet on flat surface or cutting board; spray with cooking spray. Repeat with 4 more sheets; sprinkle with 3 tablespoons cheese. Arrange another sheet on top and press firmly together. Assemble 2 more stacks. Cut each stack in half crosswise to make 6 pieces; then, cut each piece lengthwise into 6 strips for a total of 36 strips. Center and press 3 strips into each tin, letting the dough extend over the top by about 1/2-inch. Divide and spoon fruit mixture in centers. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned; then, tent loosely with foil and bake for 10 minutes more, until done.
