Berries and Sweet Cream Nesters


Makes 8 servings


2 phyllo dough sheets, thawed
Vegetable cooking spray
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
1/4 cup light sour cream
3 tablespoons fat-free milk
1 tablespoon sugar
3 packets sugar substitute
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup blueberries or raspberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray both sides of phyllo dough with cooking spray. Working quickly, cut each sheet of dough into 4 lengthwise strips and then cut each strip into fourths crosswise to make 32 squares total.
  2. Coat a nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray. Place 4 squares in each of 8 tins, with the corners overlapping. Press down gently so the dough takes the shape of the tin. Ruffle the edges to create a nest appearance. Bake 4 minutes.
  3. Remove muffin tin from oven and cool nests in tin on wire rack before gently removing.
  4. Meanwhile, combine in a bowl the cream cheese, sour cream, milk, sugar, sugar substitute and vanilla. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat until smooth.
  5. To serve, spoon 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture into each nest. Top each with 2 tablespoon berries.
