Mini Apple Tarts

I was looking into my freezer this morning, trying to plan for dinner. Then I realized I still have half a box of phyllo pastry ! So, I came up with the idea of making these mini tarts.  As for dinner tonight ?  I still don’t know what to make?????

Makes about 8 tarts

  • 4 sheets of phyllo pastry, thawed
  • 2 apples
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Wash, peel, core and cut apples in small pieces
  3. Put 1 tablespoon of butter, apples, brown sugar and cinnamon in a non-stick pot over medium heat
  4. Cook until apples are tender, about 6-8 minutes, set aside
  5. Place 1 sheet of phyllo sheet flat, brush lightly with remaining melted butter, put a second sheet on top and brush again with butter. Repeat with 2 more sheets of phyllo
  6. Cut phyllo stack into squares, (about 4 inch x 4 inch each), place each piece into a muffin cup
  7. Bake for about 5-6 minutes or until golden
  8. Spoon apple fillings into tart shell, serve warm

Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Gala or Macintosh apples would work well.
