I found this recipe from the Weight Watchers site. It is SO good. You’ll have no idea that these are “dietetic”. At only 1 smart point each, you can treat yourself with zero guilt. When I made these for my husband and myself, I only baked and filled 8 shells at a time, 4 for each of us. I kept the filling in the plastic bag and was able to have these over several evenings. What a delightful indulgence!
Phyllo shells, mini – thawed, if frozen (30 of them)
8 oz. light cream cheese, room temperature
¼ cup Greek plain yogurt – fat free
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Assorted berries for garnish
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Bake the phyllo shells on a baking sheet for about 5 minutes, until they’re lightly toasted. Allow to cool.
In a medium bowl, whisk together softened cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla. Make sure the mixture is completely smooth. Spoon this mixture into a plastic zip-lock bag. Snip off a corner and evenly pipe the mixture into the phyllo shells. (Or you can fill using a spoon)
Garnish each filled shell with a berry. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. If you leave them filled for too long before serving, the shells will get soggy.
