Just Peachy Cheesecake Tarts
At just 233 calories (and 16 carbs) per serving, this super-simple, simply-delicious, end-of-summer recipe will blow you away – without blowing your diet!
8-10 peaches, peeled and sliced (med. thickness)
1 unpeeled peach
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick butter
2 boxes Jello No Bake Cheesecake mix
3 cups cold 2% milk
1 box Phyllo Dough, thawed
reg. size muffin tins
Put peaches, sugar, cinnamon, and lime juice in a container. Stir to coat peaches well. Refrigerate overnight–maybe give add’l stir to coat halfway through refrigerating.
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or coat muffin tins well with butter or nonstick spray. Separate 1 layer of Phyllo dough, and cover the rest (per instructions on box) to keep moist. Brush with butter. Cut into approx 4×4 inch squares. Into each muffin cup, layer 2 squares of phyllo so that corners don’t overlap (making something like a 6-point star), then press down gently into the muffing cups until the phyllo takes the shape of the cup. Repeat until all of your tins are filled. |
Spoon 2-3 slices of peach and a little of the syrup that has collected into each phyllo-lined cup. Sprinkle a few small shavings or small dots of butter into each. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes, watching to make sure that the phyllo turns golden-brown, but doesn’t burn. Test peaches with a fork. They should be soft but still resist a little (for texture). Remove from oven and cool completely (about 1hr). If you need to use the tins again, you can try removing them and arranging on a plate.
Prepare cheesecake mix per box instructions, using 2% milk (you will not need the crust mixture from the box). Spoon prepared filling mix over peaches until each cup is full. Garnish with slivers from unpeeled peach. Refrigerate for at least 1 hr (and as many as 6) to allow cheesecake to set before serving.
Voila! Makes 24 individual tarts @ approx. 233 calories (and only 16.5 carbs!) each.
(If you wanted to use something like I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter sticks instead, you could probably bring it down to 200 or so.)
